Our 2018 Monastrell is a deep garnet color that glistens ruby red as you swirl it in your glass. Earthy aromas of crushed violets, black cherry, cedar, and baking spices spring from the glass. It has pleasantly acidic flavors of dried cranberry and cherry, underripe blackberry and orange pith. Black tea lactones are abundant. It has a smooth and lingering finish. Liz suggests pairing this with Wild Duck with Mushrooms.
