Estrecho Monastrell 2014
...The wine matured in used 500-liter French oak barrels for some 15 months. This is so insultingly young and undeveloped, with all the baby fat still to be rendered that it feels like an infanticide to drink it any time soon. It has a transparent ruby color and a transparency towards the fine sandy soils with an aristocratic, elegant twist...balanced and harmonious, even if the oak is a little too obvious at the moment and I think the oaking could be fine tuned. But having the older vintages have developed in bottle I have no doubt this will make a superb bottle of Mediterranean Monastrell, even better if you...wait a year or two. This could very well be the finest Estrecho to date, very much in line with the superb 2010. Drink date: 2017-2024 Score - 94. (Luis Gutiérrez,, June 29, 2016 )
