Twelve years after the start of El Seque, owner Juan Carlos has mastered the way to clearly reflect the freshness and concentrated balsamic characters produced in his seasoned and mature Monastrell fruit, making wines of great
character and balance.
Deep red and purple in color, this wine has aromas of ripe fruit and Mediterranean forest floor. On the palate the wine is voluminous, smooth and full of mature tannins. Mediterranean in character, with hints of mint and aromatic herbs, the wine has a remarkable freshness and very long finish.
80% Monastrell, 10% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

It becomes better and better after decanting for 2hrs. It reminds me to Wellington’s Noir de noir at $45. Very nice value if you’re into old vine style.
A meatier, spicier version of a Rhone blend? I really like it--and for the price, it's remarkable. Bulk buy candidate.
