Señorio de Barahonda Monastrell Yecla Tinto 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Among the oldest Monastrell vineyards in Spain. Founded in 1925, Barahonda is the oldest winery amongst 7 in the region. All vineyards are estate family owned. Barahonda major ambition is to reveal the great potential of wines made with 100% Monastrell. The Bellum project is one of the first steps towards achieving this goal.

Attention all California Merlot drinkers mdash; looking for something new? Irsquo;ve got the perfect wine for you: the 2005 Barahonda Monastrell form Spain! Produced from 100% Monastrell grapes, this luscious red is incredibly smooth, with a tantalizing, velvety mouthfeel and deep, generous body, reminiscent of some of the best Napa Merlots. Juicy blackberry, plum and black cherry in every sip. Open your mind and your heart to Spain, the not-so-secret value region that is taking the market by storm!

The 2005 Barahonda Tinto is almost as good. Produced from 100% Monastrell and raised in stainless steel, this dark ruby-colored wine has an attractive nose of forest floor, mineral, and blueberry. It has a supple palate-feel, sweet fruit, and excellent balance but it is just a bit more compact on the mid-palate and shorter on the finish than the Carro. Nevertheless, it is a superb value.
