Medium/dark ruby in color with a nose of olives, cherries, pepper, and meat. Dry, well balanced with round tannins. A medium to full bodied wine with a solid finish. Excellent value at $9 at a warehouse club.

This blend is nice. Very smooth. Did a wine tasting at H-E-B and decided to buy.

Dark ruby in color with a wide brick /reddish rim.

On the nose, black currants, plums, bell pepper, oak, licorice, cloves, earth, vegetables, vinaigrette, barnyard, tobacco, bitter herbs, vanilla, wet leaves, eucalyptus and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, currants, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, tobacco, wood, graphite, tar, earth and black pepper.

Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This nice Monastrell blend from Spain is well balanced, spicy and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing plesent complexity and mouthfeel.

A blend of 70% Monastrell, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Garnacha Tintorera. Aged for 10 months in oak barrels, Unfiltered and unfined.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

Robert Parker 92 points.
