Castillo de Monseran Old Vines Garnacha 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This wine has 14.5% alcohol by volume and the bottle is sealed with a natural cork. The wine is a deep ruby red color. The appealing nose has cherries, white pepper, vanilla, wild flowers, baking spices and a touch of dark chocolate. This has medium body with moderate tannins and good acidity. Spicy cherries and white pepper pop out first on the palate with a floral note coming out on the backend. The finish has decent length with a touch of earthiness adding some depth. Not bad but not really showing anything special at this time, I'm sure this will be better down the road. (89 pts)

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
