100% Monastrell. Perfume on the nose with a bit of freshly cut grass. Spearmint on the palate as well, in an herby way. New leather tones with some dried plums. Overall pretty vegetal, but with sharp acidity and medium body.

Acidic and vegetive... Green pepper and grass... Pretty flat, little structure.

Big monastrel. Full bodied, medium high tannins and acidity to round it out spicy ness on the finish. Really awesome.

Felt like something with New World style and this hit the spot. Rich, mocha-edged dark fruit and ripe, soft tannin. Not shabby at all.

2013. Big fruit, big spice, big barrel. Not subtle. Clunky.

I like Monastrell, I just find this to fatty with an aftertaste.
