San Valero Castillo de Monseran Garnacha 50 Year Old Vines 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very spicy on the nose and with hint of leather and suggestions of barnyard framing the core of black cherry fruit with a hint of a peppery top note. Smooth and supple with nice leather and mineral notes early on the palate followed by fresh blackberry and slightly jammy strawberry fruit. this shows a hint of herb and floral spice on the palate, just sharings of licorice and tar as well with nice dusty yet soft tannins and enough acidity to keep the blackberry and mineral flavors fresh and lively through the modest finish. 87pts
