A big, dark, intense wine. Fragrant, violet nose. Lush, dark, blackberry jam palate with a structured, slightly leathery finish.
"The opaque purple-colored 2010 Tarima Hill exhibits notes of chocolate fudge, pen ink, graphite, blueberries and blackberries. This full-bodied, 100% Monastrell should drink well for a decade or more."
The Wine Advocate
"Opaque ruby. Powerful cherry and cassis aromas are brightened by suave mineral, star anise and floral elements. Intense dark berry flavors are pleasantly bitter and surprisingly lithe, with spice and violet pastille notes adding interest. Gains sweetness and depth on the subtly tannic, very long finish, which leaves smoky mineral and floral notes behind."

I would give this 3.5 stars but since we can't I'm adding the full 4th star for the price. Deep purple in the glass with an aroma of blueberries, blackberries, spices and a floral tint. A medium to long finish. Your mouth will explode with cherry and graphite. Strong heat from the alcohol at the end. Let this age for a few years and decant at least an hour before serving. Very nice wine.
