88 points James Suckling – Barahonda Monastrell 2017

 

Grape Varieties:
Monastrell
Alcohol/VOL:
15.0%
Vintage:
2017
Tasting Notes:

Unoaked; a brilliant cherry colour with the full blackberry and cherry aromas typical of the Monastrell grape. Sweet and smooth on the palate there is concentrated dark fruit and spice flavors along with notes of licorice. The finish is solid, grippy and more spiciness.

It is a balanced wine, not over-powerful for its abv, with a chewy palate and a good depth to the finish.

This wine’s spice and fruit will pair wonderfully with sweet or savory veal or pork sausage, Cuban ropa vieja and beef or pork empanadas. There is enough weight to have with chicken mole poblano (chilli and chocolate sauce).
