This was my "gateway" wine in many ways. The first time I realized I was tasting something other than just grape juice. The first time I learned what Monastrell (Mourvedre was and what it's capable of). It's dark, velvety, smooth, seductive. It's the Barry White's voice of wines. Deep berry fruits, black olives, dark chocolate. Fantastic with fall and winter roasts, cheeses or vegetable dishes with a lot of peppers. Haven't had a vintage so far. Plus the pretty silver label makes it very presentable for a gift. Great value.
