Easygoing and enjoyable but slightly flat and weak.

I think people miss the purpose of this wine when buying it. It may be a fruit forward style of wine, but it shouldn't be confused with a wine not meant for food. It has a fragrant nose of dried violets, dried provencal herbs, and mulled dark berries. The pallet is medium in feel and medium plus in acidity, tart casis fruit, black peppercorn, and a light finish. Pairs well with smoked salmon tartines, or brisket. For a 2009 it has a great balance.

Not bad tasting. Drinkable. Very fruit forward. However not worth the price.

Really good Monastrell. Dry and jammy. It’s good with spicy food and actually really nice on the second day.

Good. But I WAS expecting more of a "wow" factor. Also this bottle was sooooo difficult to open!!

Deep garnet color and full bodied. Not much complexity, but nicely rounded tannins. Will go well with steak.
