I’ve found another new red wine varietal, Monastrell, to try. Unless it’s actually a Spanish name for a grape I already know, which is a possibility. It is deep red and while the aroma is somewhat subdued, the flavor is potent. It is not a fruity wine, it’s more like a very stern Cab. It would go well with red meat dishes and is probably better with food because it has some strong woodsy and tannic notes. A very interesting wine at this price.
