Tarima Hill Monastrell Old Vines 2011
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.
Raspberry flavors with medium tannins and a velvety finish.
recommended at Starrs, on sale. Full bodied, taste of currant and a bit of pepper. Long finish. A bit heavy to have often but certainly good enough to have again
