Mourvedre Monastrell


Carro Monastrell Carro Monastrell $14.00

The higher altitudes of Yecla result in a more aromatic, fresher style, making this wine a very easy sipper. Ripe black fruits, plum, licorice, and a hint of pepper. The gentle tannins balanced perfectly by its acidity, this one you've got to try!



Subida Subida $14.00

The word Monastrell is a synonym for monastery being that the monks were among the first to cultivate the grape. Well praise Him, this 100% Monastrell from Alicante shows His majesticness through aromas of blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, undertones of dusty earth and fresh herbs. Big, juicy, delicious red.



Juan Gil Juan Gil $16.00

We dont believe there's such a thing as "rose season." Its rose all day, everyday! Juan Gil is known for his production of Monastrell and he brings us an equally delicious rose. Floral notes, juicy strawberry and just an overall patio pounder. Great with cheese, seafood or by itself.



Jean-Guillaume Passot Cote de Brouilly Beaujolais Jean-Guillaume Passot Cote de Brouilly Beaujolais $19.00

This is still Burgundy but on a budget and using a different grape than the norths Pinot Noir. From one of the best, if not the best, Crus of Beaujolais, cola and light berry on the palate mixed in with a little mushroom and spice. A Rock Star at this price.

If your sock are on, prepare for them to be blown off! This C.D.P. is made from seven single vineyard sites, some of which are Grand cru areas. The only thing that separates this from the Grand Crus is that younger vnes are used for this wine. Grenache dominant with Syrah, Mouvedre and Cinsault in the blend.

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #1 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #2 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
