Bajel Pirata, El Poder Del Mar Monastrell 2019, Alicante, Spain
Tasting Note: An underwhelming, monastrell that lacks concentration and depth that is characteristic of so much mourvedre.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of under-ripe red cherry, raspberry and red plum.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied monastrell has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine is straightforward and completes with a short finish.
There is better monastrell out there to enjoy.
