    New York Times Best Value ***
    "Complex and well structured with long-lasting, savory flavors of dark, plummy fruit and minerals."

    "The 2009 La Tremenda is a pure Monastrell from the namesake vineyard planted in 1984, raised for 10 to 14 months in second year oak. It has a very ripe nose of wild strawberry, baked red cherry and dark chocolate, cloaked in some warm alcohol. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, light acidity and a caressing, clean, heart-warming finish of black cherries and cassis fruit that do not overwhelm. This is a finely crafted red from Alicante. Drink now-2015."~NM
