Big & Bold
This was by far one of the most overrated wine's I have ever had in my entire life. From start to finish the Carmine Monastrell seemed to get worse and worse with each glass. This tasted like wine somebody made in a basement from grapes grown in a basement. Next time, just move right past this bottle and never look back. Smooth & Supple is what it was supposed to be - bold and horrible is what it tasted like.
