Terrific for the price: full-bodied, smooth and supple. Aromas of black toasted fruit, smoky oak from generous oak aging. Pair with pepperoni pizza.

|Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Monestrell should offer earth and leather aromas when done well and this one does not dissapoint. Additional bottle time has allowed this wine to evolve nicely. Earth/soil aromas dominate the nose along with nice vanilla oak accents. The berry fruit is prominent on the palate with a bit of fresh jam flavours. Vanilla and leather flavours arrive on the scene after the rest. A nice dance.

I should state up front that I'm a Monastrell/Mouvedre fan. This was a smooth example of the medium-bodied but tannic (thick-skinned) varietal. Aromas of sweet dark cherries, tobacco (or roasted marshmallows over the campfire), black pepper, tea leaves, blueberries and herbs. Dark cherry is the predominant flavour while there was licorice and leather on the finish. Dry, medium-high tannins. Tasted May 2017.

A gorgeous nose with dried fruit, rosemary, sweet baking spices, and cedar. The palate is dry and lively, with big tannins, making this a great wine to enjoy with rich dishes high in protein. Decant prior to service. Tasted February 2015. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Plum and cherry aromas, dried fig, with a good whiff of smoke, and a dusting of clove. This wine is somewhat brooding, a little syrupy in the mouth. Definitely a lot of character, and a great price. I would drink this with one of those over-the-top decadent burgers... Maybe one with foie gras?
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Also known as Mouvedre, this medium ruby wine has some candied red fruit and floral tones along with baking spice. Sour cherry, cedar and white pepper show on the medium frame of this wine with good acidity and fine chalky tannins.
|Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Some jammy cooked strawberry, cherry, and prune, but dominated on the nose by oak, with some vanilla, cedar, cocoa, menthol, a bit of black pepper, and some volatile acidity. Tart (and somewhat bitter) cherry, black pepper, menthol, and a vague woodiness come across very strongly on the palate. Medium body, with medium plus acidity and tannins. Rather hot alcohol, especially on the finish.
|This Spanish Monastrell from Jumilla is terrific value with ample black fruit, anise and a smoky nose. Alceno's 12 Meses (2011) is produced by Pedro Luís Martínez. Great with roast leg of pork on the barbeque spit. - Community Wine Reviews|
