2013 Honoro Vera Organic Monastrell

In Monastrell, Monastrell on September 24, 2014 at 12:45 pm

hvMade with 100% organically grown Monastrell, Honoro Vera echoes some of the top cuvees in Chateauneuf du Pape.  Opening with aromas of creme de cassis, kirsch, and blackberries, it seamlessly melds into an incredibly layered palate of blueberries, wet stones and spice box.  Like all powerful Mourvedres, it is muscular—with enough brawn to support its powerful fruit character.  It drinks well now (especially with a solid decanting), or will wait up to a decade in your cellar.
