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 main grapes of the area, Garnacha for reds and Viura for whites. The Garnacha releases are available as 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.

    Snoothrank:

Fruit forward aromas of cherry, strawberry, and blackberry/blueberry warmth, along with black soil and some spice in the background. Flavors follow the aromas nicely and this is very juicy! The ripe berry character comes through very well and provi... Read More

  • Castillo de Monseran Old Vines Garnacha 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was ripe, yet characterful, showing dark fruit, ripe strawberry, mint, and a hint of oak. On the palate, it was rich and deeply rooted in brambly, earthy fruit with blackberry, currant, hints of stem and minerals. The texture was full yet grainy with tannin that tugged at your already black-fruit saturated palate. A solid vein of acidit... Read More

Spicy cherries and white pepper pop out first on ... Read More

It shows good depth of fruit, range and integration with focused red and purple fruit flavors – both fresh and dried. I found it a bit more substantive t... Read More
