Wine Review: This hazy deep ruby colored Spanish Monastrell opens with a black cherry and musty oak bouquet with hints of anise. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a red currant and black plum blend with notes of oak. We also detected a hint of craisin, coffee and clove. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity subtlety drifts away. The Panel thought this wine would pair nicely with a juicy burger or a grilled sausage. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Bright ruby-red in color, this wine shows expressive notes of fresh black cherries and red berries mingled with hints of sweet spice, toast and cocoa. On the palate, this accessible red shows silky texture, liveliness and long length. Pair it with pork chops Normandy or Kobe beef.
