Earthy aroma with blackberries and oak - good strawberry fruit in the body comes through after it sits for awhile. A bit harsh when you first open it - volatile acidity and young tannins. Herb and tomato notes as well; it's kind of like drinking an artisinal pizza.

Opaque black plum hue, aromas of dark stone fruits, leather and spice, flavor notes of dark berries, dried game and leather, integrated tannins, bright acidity, with a rich mouthfeel that lingers to a moderate finish. Great Value to pair with roast meats and game dishes.

Soft ripe fruits balanced by lithe, structural-yet-refined tannins. Here and there a note of oak, woody herbs or chocolate. Tasty, engaging and with a strong backbone.

A crowd pleaser being full, soft, flavoursome with sweet ripe fruit. Deep black-fruits, leather complexity, inky finish. Monastrell is Mouvedre. Good value

Aromas of black fruit, leather and a little bit of powdered chalk. Refreshing acidity to this, nice dark fruit and a hefty helping of drying earth.

The 2005 Monastrell is an insane value produced from three vineyard sites ranging in age from 40ndash;60 years. Opaque purple-colored, it gives up fragrant aromas of blue fruits, plums, and prunes. Ripe, layered, and full-flavored, this hedonistic effort can be enjoyed now but will surely evolve for 2ndash;3 years. Match it with beef and lamb.

Medium ruby. Varietally accurate aromas of blackberry, licorice and tree bark. Smooth, supple and quite dry, with a dominant flavor of blackberry. A tad dry on the end, but with light tannins.

A perennial favorite of Robert Parker's as well as the Premier staff. Smooth, supple texture and a rich mouthful of dark berries and subtle spice. Dense and juicy - and an incredible value at this price!

Yummy mdash; a little known blending grape used throughout the Rhocirc;ne Valley in France is often bottled on its own in the Yecla region of Spain. Concentrated, plummy, bursting with ripe dark fruits, yet not too heavy or thick; the texture is silky on a medium-bodied frame. Wonderful complement to grilled meats and vegetables.

Winemaker's Notes:

fruchtig-würziger, unkomplizierter Rotwein. An der Nase Aromen von roten und schwarzen Früchten. Am Gaumen ist dieser <strong>spanischer Monastrell</strong> Wein weich und fruchtig, sauber und harmonisch.
