Finca Bacara Taba Monastrell

1 review

Intense cherry red colour, deep, bright, attractive. Clean aroma, with remarkable intensity where seamlessly integrated quality grapes and the contribution of a modern and adequate ageing. (12 months in American Oak) Presence of ripe red fruit (blackberry, cherry) accompanied by spicy and balsamic aromas, scrub, leather and liquorice.
On the palate it is a well-structured wine, very elegant and expressive. Soft and velvety, with elegant and harmonious tannin, warm but balanced wine with a fair and refreshing acidity, well integrated and with a persistent and intense finish.
Multi award winning vintage!

Great Value, Big Wine

This is a big one. It's a Spanish Monastrell (100%) aka Mourvedre in France, and this is from the Jumilla region (think Alacante). Monastrell is most frequently used in blends and its big on everything -body, tannins, acidity, fruit and alcohol, so it's no surprise that on its own you won't be getting a lightweight wine. This one comes in at a whopping 14.5% so you'll want to put your big boy/girl pants on before popping that cork. Decanting for an hour or so is recommended and even then it mellowed between the first and last glass. On the nose it was exactly what you'd expect, intense fruit, oak, tobacco and a bit of spice and alcohol. When tasting, the fruits are still there but they are less prominent and the oak/tobacco/leather comes more to the fore. Although considered acidic, I wasn't getting that. For me it was surprisingly smooth with a real smokey, tannic finish. Pair it with something rich and fatty and you're onto a winner...
