Natalie's Score: 90/100
A huge, towering Spanish red wine blend produced from Monastrell and Syrah wine grapes from 45-year-old vines from the Yecla wine region. A dark soul with aromas of Blackberry bramble, black liquorice, olives, dried garrigue herbs on the nose. Dark plum, cocoa, leather, dark berry compote and savoury herbs on the palate matched with juicy, structured tannins. Produced from organically grown grapes. Enjoy now and for the next three years. Pair with venison stew.
Monastrell Syrah food pairings: rib steak, slow-braised beef ribs, venison stew.

|L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep, dark ruby wine, rich dense colour! Pronounced aroma of juicy fruit; blackberry, dark cherry, some plum, with vanilla and a smoky, savoury quality akin to garrigue. On the palate a juicy rich deep flavour of blackberry with herbal and faint woody notes and well structured tannin. A joy to drink and will be appreciated by aficionados of northern Côtes du Rhône Syrah. Excellent with grilled, caramelized steak and caramelized roasted vegetables; both dishes included marinades reminiscent of "garrigue" herbs especially rosemary and thyme which complemented the smoky and savoury notes in the wine.
|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Smooth , fruity and spicy. Dark plum and berries abound on the palate with fairly grippy tannins. This wine would pair well with cassoulet or hearty stew. Tasted Dec 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
|From the Yecla wine region, a Monastrell and Syrah red wine blend with pure blackberry and cherry liqueur on the nose, juicy with spiced plum, dark savoury spice, black pepper and smoky, toasty oak on the palate. Wine grapes are organically grown. Enjoy now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews|
