Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of black currants, blueberries, cherries, earth, light oak, light vanilla, herbs, vegetables, chocolates, light mocha, dark coffee, tobacco, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices graphite, bitter herbs, black tea and peppercorn.
Medium plus on the finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.
This Spanish Monastrell is always enjoyable. Nicely balanced and big, with lots of black fruits and earth notes all intertwined together.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows the big tannins.
This teeth staining red wine is drinking nicely now and could use one more year in the bottle to mellow out.
Good by itself or with food like BBQ Meats. I paired it with Spanish tapas.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
