Cellar Molandro Besllum Montsant 2008 Wine Review (NW)
Big aromas of spicy cherry and herbs on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Pomegranate, lots of spice, and some resinous notes on the long finish
Rich and spicy with a long finish, this Spanish red offers a lot of character at a bargain price. At $15 or so, this wine is a great value and a demonstration of well integrated oak and spice unlike the wine reviewed below.
I planned to buy more, but am having trouble finding it. Obviously I wasn't the only one who enjoyed this wine. From the Montsant region of Spain, it's made from Grenache, Carignane, and Syrah. If your wine merchant still has some, grab it. Pair with an assortment of tapas- and raise a glass!
