I really quite liked this. Not much to write home about on the nose but began with nice soft fruit on the front palette. This opened up to reveal a subtle spicyness that lingered into the finish. Very good value.

The 2008 Monastrell is dark ruby-colored with a nose of smoky, lightly roasted blue fruits. Juicy and ripe on the palate with layers of fruit and no hard edges, it will provide much pleasure over the next 3 years.

Konzentriertes Rot mit violetten Reflexen, im Bouquet schwingen Brombeeren, Blaubeeren, Pflaumen, Vanille und mediterrane Kräuternoten mit. Am Gaumen saftig und kraftvoll. Viel Frucht eingefasst in dunkle Schokolade und würzige Akzente. Erstaunlich gut integriertes Tannin lassen diesen Wein elegant und charmant auftreten. Das Finale ist wie schon der Auftakt intensiv und konzentriert.
