Winemaker's Notes:

"Vinos Sin-Ley's M Series features the Monastrell grape which flourishes in the warmer, drier D.O.s. As with the G Series, the wines are all raised in stainless steel to better preserve the fruit.

The 2006 M5 is from Yecla. Dark ruby-colored, it has a serious perfume of smoke, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry. Ripe and full-flavored, it has excellent depth and length. It has 2-3 years of aging potential but can be enjoyed now."

About Vinos Sin-Ley:

In translation, Vinos Sin-Ley means "Wines Without Law". The objective of Vinos Sin-Ley is to create "new wines" that are value oriented. The concept, driven by creative innovation using nonconventional methods of harvesting, fermenting, blending, aging and labeling, results in wines exhibiting new fresh fruit driven flavors that are different from those achieved in the past.

Composed of a group of young winemakers from different regions in Spain, the wines crafted at Vinos Sin-Ley are value oriented, driven by experimentation, innovative insight and the shared philosophy of the winemakers. They meet twice a year to put into effect new projects of mutual interest and shared knowledge of the winemaking techniques implemented.
