Castillo de Monseran Garnacha
Name Castillo de Monseran
Some weeks, wine Wednesday gets moved to wine Monday. This week is one of those weeks. First neuro exam is in the books and I am celebrating with this fun bottle of Garnacha! When I was working in the restaurant industry, I had this exact wine on my list and I sold it like hot cakes. Such an easy drinker. I remember the first time I tried it, the first thing that popped into my mind was black cherry kool-aid mix! I am telling you, I come up with some random stuff when tasting...but try it and tell me that isn't exactly what it tastes like! So I don't want to mislead you and make you think this is a sweet wine because it isn't. A lot of people mistake fruity for sweet when talking about wine. Just to clarify, when a wine is "sweet" there is residual sugar. Think, Moscato or Port. These wines have measurable sugar concentrations. Other wines, like this one, are just fruit-forward and have no residual sugar.
I like this wine because it is just plain fun. It is the type of wine I want to break open when it is a good day to have a good day. So cheers to that! Happy Monday!
