Un-oaked. Vibrant. A slight, stony mid palate. Decent acid. Simple. $5.99. Works well Beef Chow Fun. #wineonabudget

Initially: Not bad for a red. Lots of flavor, not too tannic. After it sat a bit: weird funk at the end. Much harsher. Don't like anymore.

Nice spice on the palette with a peppery finish. Find it at Trader Joes for under $10. Great Buy!

Lots of rust and dried meat on the nose with a obvious void of tannin and mid-palate. Acidity is a little present what is an otherwise watery palate experience.

Pretty light ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose cherries, sweet strawberries, raspberries, light oak, vanilla, barnyard, vegetables, spices, smoke, earth, thyme and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, raspberries, wood, licorice, earth, spices, red chili, green vegetables, bitter herbs, graphite, bell pepper and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Spanish Monastrell is drinking nicely now. Not fully balanced, but showing nice complexity and an enjoyable mouthfeel. A little bitter on the ending, but spicy and easy drinking. Earthy with vegetable notes, but still showing enough fruits at this time.

This 3-year old is peaking now, and is much better than it was last year.

Nice by itself, better with food, and needs 90 minutes to open up. I paired it with Spanish tapas by the pool.

Certified organic 100% Monastrell grapes and it's vegan.

14% alcohol by volume.

85 points.

$7.

A little watery, but spicy, leathery, and decent sipping wine. Good with Manchego.
