Castillo de Monseran Carinena Garnacha, 2010

In many ways, this wine is a good match for the El Chaparral Garnacha described below. According to the label, the vineyards are located in cooler regions of the mountains of Aragon.

Castillo de Monseran is very fruit forward with ripe dark cherries, strawberries and a hint of flowers and spice. It's probably as enjoyable right now as El Chaparral, but it's not nearly as deep or concentrated in its flavors. It's even less expensive, though: $6.99 for Explorer Club members at World Market. There are a number of good, inexpensive Spanish Garnachas on the market right now, but Castillo de Monseran ranks high on my list.
