2016 bodegas enrique mendoza la tremenda monastrell alicante
The name “La Tremenda” references the name of the vineyard from which the grapes for this wine are grown and handharvested. Made entirely from mature Monastrell vines, carefullyraised in the harsh, arid landscape of Alicante. “The vine must suffer…” and here it does. Bright ruby-red in color, this wine shows expressive notes of fresh black cherries and red berries mingled with hints of sweet spice, toast and cocoa. On the palate, this accessible red shows silky texture, liveliness and long length. Pair it with pork chops Normandy, Kobe beef, or parmesan-crusted asparagus tips.
