This wine is from Yecla, Spain. Jammy spice aromas, powerful fruit flavors, excellent body, smooth mouth feel and light tannins, however, there is some astringency and sourness. Good value.

The 2005 Barahonda Tinto is almost as good. Produced from 100% Monastrell and raised in stainless steel, this dark ruby-colored wine has an attractive nose of forest floor, mineral, and blueberry. It has a supple palate-feel, sweet fruit, and excellent balance but it is just a bit more compact on the mid-palate and shorter on the finish than the Carro. Nevertheless, it is a superb value.

Barahonda Monastrell 2005: Dieser Wein überzeugt mit seinem ausgezeichneten Preis/Genussverhältnis. Er ist saftig und vielfältig mit einer attraktiven Frucht. Er besitzt reife Tannine und ist insgesamt sehr rund. Er harmonisiert wunderbar zu Gerichten aus Rind, Wild oder Schwein, aber auch zu Serrano Schinken mit Olivenöl oder Pasta.Weingut: Senorio de BarahondaRegion: Murcia - YeclaRebsorte: MonastrellInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 4,75 g/lRestsüße: 3,5 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 3 - 5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Spanien > Murcia

For $10, the 2004 Monastrell Tinto is amazing. An extraordinary bouquet of raspberries, blueberries, and vanilla jump from the glass of this dense, medium to full-bodied, luscious, fruit-filled, seamlessly constructed effort. It is ideal for consumption over the next several years. the good news is that 2,500 cases are exported to the U.S. This estate is one of the top discoveries of all my tastings.

Medium red. Smoky, meaty aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry, with a mineral accent. Fresh and silky on the palate, with medium weight and sweet red berry flavors. No tannins here, just sweet, supple, delineated red fruit flavors with an intensity rarely found at this price.

Having been there, I know Yecla is a very cool place. And actually, it is a fairly warm and arid place with little rainfall, which is the perfect place to grow the finicky Monastrell grape. Barahonda has an excellent winemaker (Araceli Gonzalez Martinez) and she is able to tame this grape and make a wine that is rich and full of blueberry pie, mocha and espresso flavors.

Attention all California Merlot drinkers - looking for something new? I've got the perfect wine for you: the 2005 Barahonda Monastrell form Spain! Produced from 100% Monastrell grapes, this luscious red is incredibly smooth, with a tantalizing, velvety mouthfeel and deep, generous body, reminiscent of some of the best Napa Merlots. Juicy blackberry, plum and black cherry in every sip. Open your mind and your heart to Spain, the not-so-secret value region that is taking the market by storm!

Barahonda HC Monastrell 2005: Dieser Wein dutet in der Nase intensiv nach Aromen von roten Früchten und Pflaumen. Im Mund schmeckt er sehr harmonisch und geschmeidig. Er ist gut konzentriertund hat einen schönen langen Abgang. Perfekt passt dieser Wein zu Wild aber auch zu hellen und dunklen Fleischsorten mit kräftigen Soßen.Weingut: Senorio de BarahondaRegion: Murcia - YeclaRebsorte: MonastrellInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 15,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 4,75 g/lRestsüße: 3,5 g/l Rotwein > Spanien > Murcia
