    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is made from organically grown, estate-owned grapes. It is 100% un-oaked and one of the few 100% Monastrell wines from Yecla. Normally, winemakers in Yecla blend Monastrell with other grapes. The vines are situated in high-altitude vineyards, at 713 meters (2,339 ft.) elevation, which results in pretty, almost floral wines that contrast with other Monastrell wines, which can show more animal and barnyard characters.

    This wine's pretty, spice-inflected fruit will pair wonderfully with sweet or savory veal or pork sausage, Cuban ropa vieja and beef or pork empanadas. There's also enough spine and substance to stand up to Mexican turkey or chicken mole poblano.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2011 Barahonda Sin-Madera (100% Monastrell aged in stainless steel) offers abundant blueberry, black raspberry and cherry fruit notes intermixed with hints of crushed rocks, tobacco leaf, pepper and meat. This intense, medium to full-bodied, amazing wine is bursting with fruit.
