Inexpensive little Grenache. Surprisingly not overdone. Good balance of fruit and earth

Very good Garnacha fromAragon Spain. Great value. Opens nicely and is smooth and soft. Goes well with grilled red snapper over oak grill. Flavorful and fruity.

Great price and taste. I liked it a lot, remainds me of Spanish table wines.

Overextracted and closed. Never opened up, needs a big steak to be enjoyed with.

Loving this grape. This is a lighter Garnacha than some, which would make it perfect for bringing to a dinner party: Something unique that people might not have tried, without being so bold as to turn people off. Decanted it for a bit and it has a gorgeous deep-red colour. Would be interesting to try slightly chilled. Comes in at around $10.50, making it a great wine for such a price.

"Castillo de Monseran comes from the region of Carinena, in the heart of Aragon and the home of the garnacha grape. The vineyards are located in the highest areas, providing a cooler climate, ideal for the development of fruit flavours. The grapes were shortly macerated and then coolly fermented to make soft full-flavoured wine with intense colour and well-balanced res fruit finish."
