“The Monastrell red 2021 Depaula comes from vines at 700 meters in altitude on very poor soils, and sometimes the grapes don't ripen properly; but that was not the case in 2021, when the vines had enough water to ripen all the grapes thoroughly and produced a wine with very pure varietal character. It's fresh, balsamic and herbal, with a limestone core that delivers length and freshness coupled with a juicy Mediterranean character.  ... read more

Item Description
Wine Advocate 92
“The Monastrell red 2021 Depaula comes from vines at 700 meters in altitude on very poor soils, and sometimes the grapes don't ripen properly; but that was not the case in 2021, when the vines had enough water to ripen all the grapes thoroughly and produced a wine with very pure varietal character. It's fresh, balsamic and herbal, with a limestone core that delivers length and freshness coupled with a juicy Mediterranean character. Really good value. The wine has an incredible 12.5% alcohol. It's quite different from the 2020; they picked the grapes 15 days later than normal, and the grapes ripened properly, keeping a very low alcoholic degree. Funnily enough, it has darker aromas and rougher tannins.”

"DePaula Monastrell is a great value, and on that basis I'll give it five stars. Which is to say it's not "inspirational," but it's dependable and and has for several years been one of several 'about ten buck' wines that I keep on hand. It is a little different from year to year, as other reviewers have noted. But it's been good year in and year out. It's a big wine, very full bodied, with enough flavor and tannins to handle big foods ranging from tacos to lamb to spicy fried chicken, while being smooth enough to enjoy with crudites. Definitely worth a shot if you haven't tried it."

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."

2018 was better
"I would still recommend this but the prior few vintages had more complexity that made them a trememdous value compared to comparable wines. The 2019 vintage is missing something. It's good but a bit more bland or washed out. . Don't know the reason but that's why each years vintage can be different from one another."
