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.

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

I give it an 8 for the price, 6 bucks - not as nuisanced as many other Monastrells I've had but dark fruit, check, tart, check.

Earth and spice. Mid+ chewy body, a little savory. Tight acidity on the finish. Super fun party wine.
