MONTE OTON 2007
The Grade: AMAZING. The Mojo: This little monster was one of the steller lineup I tasted two Wednesdays ago at Chalk with my cohorts Jesse and Shannon. A stunning old vine Garnacha from Bodegas Borsao, this beautiful little red is not little at all, with juicy red berry fruit in the nose, followed up by explosive red fruit on the palate. There are supple, medium tannins and hints of floral and mineral character, all enveloped beautifully by expressive, delicious red berries. This wine stands and delivers, specially priced for these dark economic times at $6.98! A wine to buy by the case.
