Grandes Vinos y Viñedos  Monasterio de las Viñas  Garnacha Mike Taylor Very good  2003  $10.00
Garnacha from Spain often times is simply delicious. Monasterio De Las Vinas from Grandes Vinos Y Vinedos, S. A. is a solid drinking bottle given a price versus quality comparison. The wine shows a dark purple ruby core which fades nicely to a rose/ruby rim showing some youth. The nose is straight forward with aromas of plums and spice. In the mouth there is plenty of plum flavor within the lean body that shows a supple consistency, light drying tannins and fresh acidity. Overall, this wine is nicely balanced, offering agreeable complexity and good value.
