Taste

It’s all about the fruit with the Honora Vera Monastrell, and is nowhere heavy and “in your face” as I thought would have expected from Mourvedre. A definite crowd pleaser, with cherry pie, raisin bread, ripe plums, and a little tobacco. Smooth and fairly jammy from start to finish. At $10 a bottle, it’s hard to challenge it. The added bonus is of course that it’s organic, and so there’s no fear you’re going to grow a third arm after drinking a couple of bottles…

      :) I don’t think it can really be beaten for the price.
