Tarima Hill Monastrell Old Vines 2009
Monastrell grapes are hand-harvested from small plots of low -ielding old vines. The wine exhibits deep garnet color with flashes of violet and a bouquet of dark red cherries and leather. On the palate, the wine achieves its full potential, offering notes of black berries, plums, and licorice with an elegant but persistent finish.
Really nice for the price.
External Reviews for Tarima Hill Monastrell Old Vines
Vivid ruby. Sexy black raspberry and oak spices on the nose, with notes of fresh rose and anise adding complexity. Sweet, sappy and expansive, offering lively dark berry preserve flavors and a velour-like texture. Graceful and balanced but also packs a punch. Finishes smooth, spicy and quite long.
Food Pairings for Tarima Hill Monastrell Old Vines
Monastrell’s intensity of fruit shows throughout the wine; red plums, black cherries, and raisins, and the toasty barrel power lingers as well. There are a few green, herbal notes, and the wine finishes with a lingering warmth and toast.
66000 bottles produced.
Notes: 20 months in French Oak barrels
