Tarima Monastrell 2012

Product Information

"One thing you can still count on out of Spain is the occasional jaw dropping value. Here we are with the latest creation from the fertile mind of Jorge Ordonez, this time around partnering with the Gil family who bring you such blue chip values as Juan Gil. Now, granted, Jorge, arguably the biggest reason for the current level of awareness of Spanish wine in the US, is never afraid to step up to the plate. After some experimenting, his white wine lineup (Shaya, Botani, La Cana)is now brilliant. His reds have generally been very successful, too, though there is the occasional ‘wrongo dongo’. But Tarima, at least out of the gate, has all the makings of a long term hit. All Monastrell from 25-35 year old vines, all done in stainless steel, it is a lesson in purity of fruit, rich flavors, and gregarious drinkablity even at this tender age. We first tasted it alongside another of his projects a few months back and we preferred it to the much more expensive (we found out later) bottling. When they told us the price, our surprise probably showed (no ‘poker faces’ that time). The only real question at that point was ‘how soon will it get here?’ A surprisingly ample mouthful for such a modest tab, it shows notes of cocoa, anise, violet and mineral along with blackcurrant and plum flavors. It’s one of those wines that has enough going on for those that are paying attention but also the kind of friendly demeanor to engage those that are just quaffing. A lot of value wines are tailored to be good deals in the glass, but this one actually delivers. A great start." ~(Importer's Notes)
