What the Experts say: An ultra-ripe blackberry nose with grilled nuts and mocha. The palate has muscular tannins and a long blackberry core that holds impressively.  Score – 92. (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, July 24, 2017)

What do I think:  I don’t know why I don’t always start in the Spanish wine section?   Amazing 2014 at $16 bucks, muscular it is, smooth and full bodied.  From pre-dinner through dinner you won’t tire of this one.  Had never heard of Monastrell.  A steal!
