Tarima made from non-organic Monastrell is sensational. From an area dominated by cooperatives, this full-bodied blockbuster boasts plenty of blue and black fruit notes, impressive purity and an enticing texture as well as length. It is hard to believe that wines such as this can be found for under $10 a bottle.
Saturated bright medium ruby. Medicinal blueberry and licorice aromas complicated by violet and chocolate nuances on the pure, scented nose. Plush and sweet on entry, then suave and pliant in the middle, with nicely integrated acidity framing the wine's sweet dark berry flavors. Lush tannins coat the tongue and teeth. Quite suave for the price range.
