Some gentle oak tones add to the bouquet of forest floor, dried tarragon, dried bitter orange zest, sweet medicinal herbs and light strawberry fruit. A touch of that dried orange is followed by a lovely fresh mouthful of wine. This has nicely managed tannins and juicy, if integrated, acidity supporting a slightly earthy, oak-framed core of clear, if slightly rustic, fruit. Very well-balanced with a round feel that has enough structure to lend it some texture and mouthgrab. A lovely effort and one that is particularly food-friendly. 88pts

Nice inexpensive Grenache, Aromas of plum and raspberry, smooth on the palate, long lasting finish and a deep satisfying wine aura. Balanced with mild but noticeable tannins

Wild flowers, dirt, old leather, tobacco, walnuts and red fruit on the nose. Palate opens with high notes of tangy mango, raspberry and blueberry, underscored by black dirt and tart berries, then walnuts and caramel, all encompassed by a zesty acidity laced with strawberry syrup. Medium finish displays in a velvety mouthfeel with a fruit-filled zing just before before dryness sets in. At the price, a real value and worth keeping in the closet for an easy drinking garnacha.

With an extremely long finish this wine is sure to please! Slight caramelized and spicy aroma. Woody, nutty.

The best wine I've had for under $10 in a long time! The grapes where grown in the cooler mountain regions of Carinena, Spain, macerated and then fermented, producing a smooth, intensified fruit flavor (most particularly black cherry). There's a lot of spice and a slight tobacco on the nose.

Quite good for the price! Came back to it after trying other inexpensive reds.

    I am new to wine. I tend to like fruit foward wines, and this is one of them. Great aroma with a long finish. This is the best wine I've had at this price.Taste like 30 dollar wine, but its not. Tannins are just right, fruit is not sweet at all. would reccomend. smile.

    Cariñena is often cited as the birthplace of Grenache and Castillo de Monséran is dedicated to producing wines exclusively of this varietal. Lots of big ripe fruit but not over the top shows the dedication to the old-world style of winemaking.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This 100% Garnacha from 30- to 50-year-old vines comes from a co-op in the Cariñena DO of Aragón region with 40 different growers. An incredible bargain, it has no barrel influence, and is very fresh and fruity on the nose with cherry pie like fruit and fresh rose floral notes. Smooth and velvety on the tongue with a nice freshness. Simple with pretty floral notes. 86 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2010 Garnacha spent 3-6 months in American oak. Aromas of rose petals and black cherries inform the nose of a grapy, ripe, easy-going red to pair with pizzas and burgers over the next 3 years. (Jun 2011)
