Sierra Norte, Colección Privada Porta Regia, Monastrell 2014, Jumilla, Spain
Tasting Note: A concentrated, monastrell with bite that would keep any cabernet-sauvignon lovers at your table happy.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of blackberry, black plum, red currant and raspberry compote.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied monastrell reveals black fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by grippy, medium-plus tannin.
The wine is concentrated, especially in the midpalate with some minor notes of complexity.
Bottle Note: Aged 12 month in oak barrels.
Importer: Grapes of Spain, Inc., Lorton, Virginia
