Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2007 Vina Honda Monastrell (100% varietal) was raised in stainless steel tanks. Purple-colored, it offers up a fragrant nose of underbrush, mineral, spice box, and blueberry. Layered, mouth-filling, and succulent, this forward effort will offer much pleasure over the next four years." (02/09)

Product Description:

WINE:
"100% Monastrell, the vineyards produce less than 2 Kg. per vine. Harvest was in the first and second week of October. Traditional fermentation at controlled temperature between 26/28 C. Traditional maceration for 9 to 10 days. Tasting notes: Red cherry colour with hints of purple on the rim. Elegant aromas of red fruits; on the palate it is balanced and well structured, fruity and fresh, with a pleasant finish." -Winemaker

"In 2002, Bodegas Silvano Garcaa started a new stage; new wines were elaborated by choosing the grapes that fulfilled our quality criteria best and by updating our elaboration systems. We launched the brands Vina Honda for white, rose, young red and aged red wines; and Silvano Garcaa for sweet wines." -Winery

"Grapes come from 25-30 year old vines that yield less than 2 kilos per plant. Harvest was conducted over the first weeks of October. The monastrell is fermented in a traditional manner in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and skins macerate for between 9 to 10 days depending on the lot. Gentle pump overs and a pneumatic press were used to minimize harsh tannins. This wine was not aged in oak barrels. " - Importer

This wine was also scored 88 points by the International Wine Cellar and Wine & Spirits magazine, and rated 84 points by Wine Enthusiast & Wine Spectator.
