Honoro Vera Monastrell 2014
Made with Monastrell grapes from vineyards planted on very poor and stony limestone soil with few nutrients and lack of irrigation, resulting in a wine with a high aromatic intensity and a great fruit concentration. It's very pleasant and easy to drink. Its pleasing nose reveals notes of underbrush, mineral, and blueberry leading to a savory, spicy, nicely balanced medium-bodied wine. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. Food Pairings: Rice, pasta, (noodles, spaghetti, macaroni), vegetables, mushroom, stewed meat, sausage, pork, roast meat, red and/or white meat with sauces, grilled meat, short or medium cheeses.
Wine SpectatorGrape and cola flavors show a slightly candied character in this round red. Light tannins and sweet-tart acidity support the thick texture. Drink now. 20,000 cases made.
