Slightly minty and grassy on the nose, and that mild green character persists. The palate is a bit clacky and acidic, yet the flavors evolve and ultimately rest at candied and medicinal. A touch biting but it tastes pretty good and it’s decidedly not sour. A blend of 55% Monastrell with 25% Cabernet Savuignon and 20% Syrah.
This wine’s light, rusty color and herbal, dilute nose tell you most of what you need to know about this weakly constituted Monastrell-led blend. Tea, leafy fruit flavors, pepper and rooty flavors are what it’s about.
