Chuck picked up a bottle of Hécula 2010 at CostCo. @ $9/bottle.
I think this is the first time I’ve had 100% Monastrell wine. Ususally it has been in blends and I understand why it gets used. This grape is Cabernet Lite. Similar flavor, not as much body/mouth feel. It isn’t bad alone, but it is a good ingredient to modify other grapes.
