Terra Unica Tempranillo-Monastrell Reserva 2000 Wine Review (NW)

Plum and grapes on the nose
Soft, fleshy palate with a perfume-like touch
Nice, fruity finish

This is a fun, interesting wine! It's a 50/50 blend of Tempranillo and Monastrell produced in Alicante, Spain. For only $9, it packs a punch. In the bargain Spanish category, it stacks up well due to the fleshy, fruity core. Paired with lentil soup and various appetizers, it performed well. Raise a glass!

A very impressive light, but good flavored & smooth tasting wine, especially for the price -- $7. (I'm not a wine expert, however.)

I picked up a bottle of this 3 weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Interestingly, since noone was sharing it with me, I only drank half the bottle. Because of a killer work schedule it sat on a dining room cabinet for 3 weeks sealed only with a vin-u-vent. When I opened it up last night it was still good. I never had a wine that was this stable after opening.
