Rich and full but I wish it was a little more layered. Texture is awesome though -- great balance.

Needs decanting. A little stony without, but has some nice flavor once it opens up. Southern Spain.

Full and comfortable. Smells like coffee and tobacco - tastes like it, too, but with dark fruits that are not jammy or sticky. Seems nicely balanced. Really pleasant. #jumilla #monastrell #mouvedre #spain #dogsofdelectable

Nicely rounded monastrell. Lacking a bit of complexity but pleasing to drink

Aromas of blackberry, a hint of licorice, and lavender. More of the same on the palate, with plenty of acid and soft tannins to make this great with food (e.g. tonight's quesadillas with cilantro and habanero hot sauce). Great value, too, at around $12.

Fruity and bold. So delicious. I would buy this bottle again any day!

I love dry red wines, this one isn't as dry as I prefer but it's great for the low price

Pairs well with manchego cheese and garlic kale salad. Smooth on its own as well. Great price!
