Food Pairings for Bodegas Olivares Altos de la Hoya
The varietal mourvedre (monastrel) here echoes the fat, country-style ones from the sunny south of France."Glass-staining purple. Powerful dark berry preserve aromas, with pungent floral and herbal qualities adding complexity. Alluringly sweet in the mouth, with deep blackberry and candied cherry flavors showing impressive intensity and power. The lingering, lucid finish features broad, velvety tannins. Displays wonderful pliancy and focus, and has the depth to age." Stephen Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar.
