IPOB Brilliance: #SHUTUPMONASTRELLALREADY

Clear bright purple garnet with clear edges.  Big stemmy funk over pond-water and a lavender-ish floral but everything dripping with fruit.  A BEAUTIFUL little wine.  The balance of Grenache simplicity, Syrah concentration and Monastrell foundation nearly overwhelms the decidedly Euro edges.  In the mouth, brilliant ripe cherry and watermelon Jolly Rancher, beautiful and bright with a heroin-injection of black pepper and acid trailing off to bitter tannin.
