Monster Vineyards crafts wines for the curious at heart. Winemaker Stefan Arnason sources grapes from vineyards that match the expressions of their portfolio; bold, fruit-forward, and pleasing to the palate. The Monster Shiraz displays a robust nose of baking spices, black currant, and ripe blackberries. A smooth and well-balanced palate of black licorice and baked blueberry pie is gentle but certainly not wimpy to the taste buds. Drink now – 2022.
