Today, we are excited to share with you this 92 point Monastrell from Bodegas Enrique Mendoza for just $10.99 a bottle! A great value out of Alicante, La Tremenda is an unassuming wine that surprised us tremendously, pun intended. Also known as Mourvedre, Monastrell is not a varietal for the impatient winemaker. It can take years for newly planted vines to even produce grapes and is one of the latest ripening varietals in Spain.
Made from 25+ year old vines and aged for six months in French oak barrels, La Tremenda is dark and juicy with silky texture and a lengthy finish. For just $10.99, this red offers a wonderful value for the money that you don't want to miss out on!
If You Like Bold Spanish Reds...
then you are sure to like Triton. One of Spain's oldest Tempranillo clones native to Toro, Tinta de Toro wines are strong, full reds that offer rich fruit and a wealth of flavor. Appropriately name, Triton is a powerhouse of a wine that offers just that! Bold and delicious, treat yourself to this bad boy today!
“It's a rich, powerful wine loaded with notions of blackcurrants, dark chocolate, licorice, crushed rocks, and crushed violets. It's full-bodied, has impressive depth of fruit, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It's a rocking wine that can be drunk today or cellared for 15 years or more.” - Jeb Dunnuck, 93 points
