A 100% Mourvedre (Monastrell), this wine was richly fruity and a great value.
Eye: Dark ruby with violet highlights.
Nose: Beautifully pure fruity nose -- ripe plums, grapes, and blackberries, with a subtle background note of stony minerals.
Mouth: Soft, broad entry, with good concentration and lots of body. Loads of fruit and soft tannin in the finish. Not complex, but very satisfying as an everyday red.
Cellar or drink? Drink over the next two years.
