The wine has a deep red color. It is aromatically, intense, with great complexity. Smoky, red fruits (red currant, strawberry) with tones of vanilla and spice. The texture is lush, soft tannins with long flavors of red fruits and vanilla. Great served with all-meat dishes marinated or coked, pasta dishes and perhaps best after a meal.
Castillo de MonseranView all wine
Castillo de Monseran is located in Carineña in Spain. Cariñea is frequently cited as the birthplace of Grenache/Garnacha. Only later did the varietal migrate to southern France, where it gained fame as a Rhone varietal, especially in the big, peppery Chateauaneuf de Papes of the southern Rhône. The terroir in Carineña holds similarities of the southern Rhône.
Castillo de Monséran is made by winemaker Hugh Ryman and Jesús Prieto, the winemaker of Bodegas San Valero.
