Wine of the Week

2016 Enrique Mendoza
La Tremenda Monastrell

Alicante, Spain

This week’s W.O.W. is a highly rated, red wine from southeast Spain’s Alicante wine region. The name "La Tremenda" is the name of the vineyard where the grapes for this wine are grown. Made entirely from mature Monastrell vines, this is a world-class wine at an incredible price.

TASTING NOTES:

92 Points, Wine Advocate:
“The 2016 La Tremenda fermented in stainless steel and matured in French barriques for six months. 2016 is a cooler year than 2014 or 2015, and the wines reflect it. It was not an easy year; they had to do a strict selection of grapes, and it paid off. It has the character of the variety, with its elegant rusticity with a fresh, herbal twist and a palate with fine-grained tannins, nicely textured and with a supple, very tasty finish. This is a superb introduction to Monastrell from Alicante at an incredible price.”

Here’s another easy drinking, food-friendly summer red. Delicious and priced for every day drinking.
