This has become our house red; we buy this by the case it's so good. Blueberry jam, cedar, a hint of vanilla and black pepper -- and a little gamey on the nose tonight. This followed some big wines and still held its own. Little sibling to El Nido - this is very new world in style and taste. Just so easy drinking and delicious.

Cherry red, very spicy, vegetables, very long on smell. Extremely persistent, sweet, long, mineral, very well structured, silky on mouth. Do truly love this blend of monastrell and cab sauvignon. 34€ in Spain, veeeery good.

Juicy, huge oak, and a finish so long you almost want it to stop. Some earthy spice and chalkiness finds its away into the overload of new world fruit, but this wine is damn well made and a great marriage of opposing flavors.

2013 is a Big Winner in Spain, this Awesome Clio is right up with the Best Vintages produced. Pure fruits of Blueberries and other black fruits. Great texture and mouthfeel, not to be missed! Opened at Eagles vs Bills game tailgate . CB 94

Although more refined than the Syrah still loads of oak. Much more balanced although softer.

What a surprise, blind tasted this one and discovered a region i was unaware of. Heavily Oaked the subtle hints of Cabernet were masked by what turns out to be Monastrell. This 2013 drank like a much younger wine and knowing this now can see this wine being wonderful 20 years from now

Powerful Blend of Old Vine Monastrell (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%). Dark purple color and high (16%) alcohol. Aromas of dried plums, cherries and tobacco. Dark fruit flavors with hints of dark chocolate, coffee and baking spices. Juicy and rich. Good structure and complexity. Tannins are well integrated. Long finish.
