    Region: Spain

    Varietal: Mourvedre

    Item no. 89612

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 22 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

    Excellent example of the Monastrell grape in its early years. Intense aromas of black fruit (plums) and less ripe red fruit (cranberries, mulberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants). On the palate it is fruity and fresh, and alive with tannins which leaves a pleasant aftertaste.

    "The 2005 Monastrell is an insane value produced from three vineyard sites ranging in age from 40-60 years. Opaque purple-colored, it gives up fragrant aromas of blue fruits, plums, and prunes. Ripe, layered, and full-flavored, this hedonistic effort can be enjoyed now but will surely evolve for 2-3 years. Match it with beef and lamb."
    -The Wine Advocate

    I took this bottle to a gathering of friends recently, and everyone raved about it. This one was a wildcard for me as I hadn't tasted it before, but I'm glad I went with my instincts.

    This may be one of the worst wines I've tryed since shopping the past 5 years with wine.com. RP must have spent too much time at the barrel to give a rating of 90 for this horrible wine. This wine is no bargain at all... you will need to dump it down the drain as I did.
