Natalie's Score: 89/100
Tart, chary black fruit and lots of toasty oak and smoke on the nose and palate. Good acidity for tangy sauces and meat dishes.
Food pairings: meat pizza, lasagne, rich tomato sauce and pasta.

Reviews and Ratings
|Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
powerful nose of animal leather and overripe fruit. Perfect replay on the palate. Not quite smooth so theefore can be aged 3-5 years, or drink now with foods with an element of fat.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Dark berries, prune, fresh herbs, fresh tobacco, and loads of pepper make this a very good steak wine. 90 points (www.ottawawinejournal.com )
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Dark fruit, smoke, spice and vanilla for aromas with a palate of jammy dark fruit, tobacco, spice, grippy tannins and a decent finish. Great with grilled steak flatbread pizza.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This Spanish red is a blend of 60% Monastrel and 40% Syrah. Medium-full body presenting layers of dark fruit, combined with tobacco leaf, vanilla and a sweet spice finish. This is a perfect burger pairing.
|Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
I've been on a "Monastrell" streak this winter so this 60% Monastrell with 40% Syrah blend was a slight variation on the theme. A fragrant blend with dark berries, sun-dired black mission figs, smoke, spice and vanilla aromas. The dark fruit is also apparent on the palate. A dry finish, medium tannins and a bright acidity. Enjoy this wine with steak or burgers.
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
This cherry coloured wine has sous-bois characteristics. It has aromas of cedar, black currents, and honey, as well as a touch of incense and cigar box. It is chewy and has dark berries as well as underwood qualities on the palate. It has good length and is food friendly. It would pair nicely with a barbecued steak or with beef stew.
Tasted October 2017
|Sein 2011 is a full-bodied red wine blend of 60% Monastrell and 40% Syrah from the Alicante wine region. When blended, the Monastrell is smoky from toasted oak treatment and the juicy Syrah gives the Monastrell lift and perfume. This is a big wine at 15% abv. Pair with rich meat dishes. - Community Wine Reviews|
