Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena Old Vine Garnacha 2009

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.

Castillo de Monseran is a value-driven wine brand out of Cariñena, Spain. The label depicts a Medieval castle, which is not an uncommon site in this historic region. Their wines focus on the two man grapes of the area, Garnacha for reds and Viura for whites. The Garnacha releases are available at an entry level red as well as an “old vines” release (meaning the grapes are sourced from vines which can be as old as a century or more in that region), which tend to yield more concentrated and flavorful fruit.  Read less

Opaque plum hue, fleeting aromas of ripe red fruits, cola and wet woods; flavor notes of rich red stone fruits, red and black berries; round in the mouth with big fruit flavors and silky tannins.

Fresh berry aromas with flavors of blueberry and somewhat tart cherry.

Light on the nose but smooth and silky throughout. Well balanced fruity finish. Excellent wine for the price.

This paired very well with a Green Curry dish.

This is my all time favorite best for a "cheaper" wine (retails 8,95 in quebec).

I am so shocked by the fact that this wine has only one review. This is one of the BEST and smoothest tasting wines in this price category which I've tried so far.

Three and a half glasses



Tasting Notes:

Easy drinking, fruit driven wine. Herbal overtones, bursting ripe berry and plum fruit of the Garnacha. Soft and round on the palate, this wine has limited extraction and tannin to enhance youthful consumption. Lingering fruit flavors.

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.
