Blackberries with some toffee and dark-chocolate undertones. Beautiful, fruity palate with clean and bright fruit. Very fine tannins and a fresh finish. Yummy to drink.

COMMENTARY: In 2013, the Minano and Gomez families—owners of the MGWine Group purchased Bodega Sierra Salinas. The new ownership updated this property with modern techniques in the vineyards and winery. The 2019 Sierra Salinas Mo Monastrell is beautiful, balanced, and refined. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of red fruits and plenty of bright berries. Enjoy it with slowed-cooked, smoked ham hocks. (Tasted: August 27, 2022, San Francisco, CA)

Always a good value, the 2019 Mo Monastrell has lots of red and blue fruits as well as violet and peppery herb-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, supple, round, and juicy, drink it over the coming 3-4 years or so. Best After 2022

In 2013, the Miñano and Gómez families, owners of MGWine Group, purchased Bodega Sierra Salinas

Founded in 2000 by the Castaño family of Yecla. Since 2013, the philosophy of the Miñano and Gómez families has been to restore focus on the vineyards, by converting all of them to organic and dry farming. The temptation in such an arid climate as Alicante is to irrigate, but dry farming in this zone forces the root structures to grow deep and produces bunches with a tremendous natural balance of phenolic ripeness and healthy pH. They have also minimized the impact of new oak barrique in their wines, and at this price point, are creating a completely unique style of Monastrell from Alicante. Jorge Ordóñez Selections began to represent Bodega Sierra Salinas in the United States in July of 2018.

Alicante is a port city in southeastern Costa Blanca and municipality in the Valencian Community of Spain. The eponymous DO is a non-contiguous appellation, divided between east and west. Along the eastern coast you find La Marina, a subzone known for its perfumed sweet white wines made from Moscatel de Alejandría; other white grape varieties include Merseguera and Malvasía. The drier, more extreme climate to the west is home to Monastrell, which accounts for 75% of total DO vineyard plantings. Other major red grape varieties include Garnacha Tintorera and Bobal, a thick-skinned black variety native to the Levante (the eastern edge of the Iberian Peninsula). Bobal had been destined for bulk wine production during much of its modern history but a new generation of winemakers today are taking advantage of the wide availability of old vine material, to produce full-bodied, concentrated wines, which are increasingly complex. In the last ten years, Alicante DO has gained popularity and respect for its new light, fresh wines and interesting varietal reds produced by pioneering bodegas.

Alongside the other wines emerging here, Alicante’s classic dessert wine, Fondillon, has been exported for centuries and is enjoying its own renaissance.

Full of ripe fruit, and robust, earthy goodness, Mourvèdre is actually of Spanish provenance, where it still goes by the name Monastrell or Mataro. It is better associated however, with the Red Blends of the Rhône, namely Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Mourvèdre shines on its own in Bandol and is popular both as a single varietal wine in blends in the New World regions of Australia, California and Washington. Somm Secret—While Mourvèdre has been in California for many years, it didn’t gain momentum until the 1980s when a group of California winemakers inspired by the wines of the Rhône Valley finally began to renew a focus on it.
