Bodegas Enrique Mendoza La Tremenda Alicante Monastrell 2014 (750ml 12bottle)

$119.76

"Mendoza" is the winemaker's name - this is all Spanish Monestrel, packing a bold punch of dark fruit with a silky texture. "Feels very tender, it has the esparto grass austerity of the stony vineyards with the chalky soils and a myriad of Mediterranean herbs. It has the dusty tannins and the saline tastiness of the limestone soils. It represents a superb value; the price is hard to believe." WA 92

Second bottle. Medium depth and body. Wood forward, but not overwhelming. Solid fruit. Earthy and vegetal, but not in an underdeveloped sense. Good, versatile.

Needs about 15 minutes to breathe, and the tartness goes away. I usually associate cherry with "sour", but this is surprisingly mellow and even a little sweet on the palate.

Tastes like homemade strawberry jam smoked out of a leather pipe. In a good way.

Lots of toast, cocoa, Black cherry, hint of sweet tobacco. Lots of glycerol, balanced acidity, chalky lightly chewy tannins.
