Tarima Hill Old Vines Alicante Monastrell

Big, loud baked black fruits, campfire, and plenty of oak. Not an every day kind of wine for me, but stood up admirably to ribeyes. Rich, ripe, and masculine. A few years has been good to this - I didn’t enjoy this a couple of years ago, but it was really decedent tonight. — 18 days ago

Parcelica Chica Yecla Monastrell Syrah 2018

Buttered popcorn, ripe blackberries, almond extract, cherry cola, uncooked bread dough, hints of cinnamon, dill, and fresh picked capers in the bouquet. Sweet plums, stewed blackberries, black cherry with notes of fresh sticky white rice and clay and the faintest but not troubling hint of bell pepper on the palate. Finish a bit thin but scratchy tannins linger nicely. Great value, definitely one of the more interesting wines I’ve tried lately.

Gold Goru Jumilla Monastrell

Very interesting. First second feels like it is setting up to punch you in the face but then it immediately disappears. I taste tobacco and oak — 21 hours ago

Honoro Vera Jumilla (Organic) Monastrell 2016

Best bang for the buck ever. This $8 wine is massively underrated. Not alone, when I went back to get a case it was all gone. Looking forward to next year. — 22 days ago

Bodegas El Nido

El Nido Jumilla Cabernet Sauvignon Monastrell 2016

Sappy. Cherry preserves, cassis, blueberry, and plum. The entire fruit spectrum. Clove, vanilla, sandalwood. Full bodied but not too intensely concentrated while maintaining freshness. More and more layered with air. A cult wine at $120 a bottle (for Jumilla?!?), but clearly well made. — a day ago

Goru 18 M Monastrell Cabernet Sauvignon

Ok i like this wine. This is a very good blend and for the price of like 22ish bucks hey, worth it. I stay away from a lot of Spanish wines especially from rioja because Tempranillo sucks..i mean maybe its good but I just have no invested a bunch of money into a grape I'm not fond of so who knows. But this wine is a good reminder to not let bias get in the way of a good purchase. — 23 days ago
