"Always an incredible value, the 2016 Depaula is pure Monastrell from vines planted at 900-meters altitude. It fermented and aged in 4,500-liter oak vats with full clusters and indigenous yeasts. This is different from the other reds; it's from a different region (outside Jumilla) with more color and a different profile, even if they have harvested earlier and obtained a wine with less alcohol. However, it's not easy to make a straightforward and fruit-driven red with ungrafted ancient Monastrell, and in the future, they might release a more serious cuvée of Monastrell. This has chalky tannins and a nice mouthfeel, with the juiciness of the variety and the minerality from the soils, and has balsamic and Mediterranean aromas and flavors. It's serious and balanced rather than explosive."

Great bang fot the buck - Very good concentration, excellent fruit, smooth with really nice finish. $30/$40 boutique wine have hard time matching this in a BLIND tasting.
