Winemaker's Notes:

Vinos Sin-Ley M5 Monastrell is deep red-purple in color with a nose of fresh blackberries, black raspberries and kirsch. It is rich and dense on the palate with expressive ripe fruit showing youthful texture. Aged in stainless steel tanks; only 2100 cases produced. On the finish, it is long and complex with polished tannins.

Enjoy Vinos Sin-Ley M5 Monastrell over the next 5-6 years with roast lamb, steak, grilled vegetables and aged cheeses.

"The 2007 M5 is sourced from Yecla. Dark ruby-colored, the nose contains enticing, slightly roasted notes of mineral, pencil lead, and an amalgam of black fruits. On the palate, this meaty effort has excellent density, layered flavors, and a remarkably long finish for a wine of its humble price." 91 Points

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.
