Wine AdvocateThe best is the 2013 Tarima Hill, which is 100% Monastrell from vines planted between 1935-1970 in pure chalk. This is aged 20 months in 100% French oak. Bottled unfiltered, this has beautiful aromatics of blueberries, black raspberries, chalk dust and floral notes. The wine hits the palate with a fresh, medium to full-bodied, pure style. This is a serious and terrific value from Alicante and should drink nicely for 3-4 years.
