Top 6 Monastrell

3. Enrique Mendoza la Tremenda Monastrell D.o. Alicante Monstarell (2008)

« Prev Next » 3 of 6
Average price: $15.00 from 1 store
This is musky and gamy on the nose with lots of herb and raw oak accents to the bright wild plum and blackcurrant fruit aromas. Enters the mouth with a leading edge of roasted red fruit and raw beef that gains notes of bitter cocoa and roasted herbs on the palate. This is powerful and rich, yet it retains a certain sense of transparency as it delivers ripe if lightly liquory and fairly spicy red berry fruit on the mid-palate. Turns a bit oakier on the back end. The finish is a bit tough with plenty of tannins; chewy, dark and licorice-scented. A powerful wine but one with some complexity and detail. 87pts
