Huge value red #wine blend.

#Greneche #Monastrell mix. Dark , wild berry aromas. Opaque in the glass , shiny sheen. Palate is moderate with medium body, mild tannin and deceiving acid. More tart, dark fruit flavors. Good structure. Opened 3/23/17

Big wine. Ripe bing cherry predominant flavor. Wine is not together yet. Needs lots of time. Was hoping for something more elegant

(Monastrell) Smooth and light. Enjoyed it by itself. Paid a premium for the bottle because it was consumed at a bar. Would purchase again, for the listed price, but not worth the price paid at the bar.
