The Freixenet 2005 Ash Tree Estate Shiraz/Monastrell is truly a remarkable value at 1000 yen. Freixenet is a Spanish wine producer who is more renowned for their line of sparkling wines--in fact, I didn`t know that they even produced any reds until I stumbled upon this wine.

The Ash Tree Estate is a very complex wine. Initially there is a peppery quality that one usually equates with a Shiraz, but then the flavor changes into notes of jammy fruit. The wine is dry enough to feel on your gums and front teeth.

I`ve never heard of the Monastrell grape, but I`m assuming it takes on a Merlot-like function of softening the Shiraz in the wine.

I`m really sad that I didn`t buy the remaining 6 bottles at the store, but as it`s 1.5 hours away, I might just have to savor this lone bottle.
