Dried dates and figs, honey, rosemary, lavender, bay and dried animal hide, angelica and licorice. Guess it’s a monastrell?! Gently balsamic redwood, road-kill and the road on which it landed - the tar of Monastrell. It has cherry and toffee apple, lifted over dark soil and black rock aromas. It’s a perfect varietal example, yes, but it is delicious wine first and foremost, dark, soft and satisfying, but never heavy, with nice lift, surprising length and a fresh spicy exit. ‘La Tremenda’ is the single-vineyard name.
