Castillo de Monseran Carinena Garnacha, 2010

This wine is still available at World Market for $6.99, a remarkable value. I can't believe I haven't bought and consumed more of it. It's sourced from mountainside vineyards located in the center of the Aragon region, apparently a good climate for Grenache.

The color is an attractive deep ruby. Very pleasant fruit aromas and flavors--dark cherry, red plums and flowers. An unusually broad range of spicy aromas, soft but intense and lively. Not at all sweet but a finish that brings you back for more. Reminds me of old fashioned Cotes du Rhone wines from the early 1980s.
