This is made from Monastrell (Mourvedre). It was great to get a chance to revisit as it had probably been ten years since last tried. It is a tremendous value in wine. Deep ruby/purple in color. The nose has black raspberries, dust, blueberries and vanilla. On the palate, this is slightly sweet/rip with black raspberries, slight blueberries and char. This is also delicious. It drinks great on its own and will work with ribs or burgers. I suspect it ages for five to seven years, but have never tried that as it drinks well young. A great option on restaurant lists as well.
