Vinos Sin-Ley M5 is 100% Monastrell from the Yecla region of Spain. Vinos Sin-Ley was created in 2003 by Emili Esteve from Catalonya, and Manuel Martinez from Madrid. In 2005 additional winemakers joined the group, presenting new cuvees that offer novelty and value to the market. Vinos Sin-Ley means "Wines Without Law" in translation. The twofold objective of Vinos Sin-Ley is to create "new wines" that are value oriented. The result is fresh fruit-driven flavors that are different from those achieved in the past. Composed of a group of young winemakers from different regions in Spain, the wines crafted at Vinos Sin-Ley are value-oriented, driven by experimentation and innovative insight. This 2009 vintage received a 90-point rating from Jay Miller for Wine Advocate--a true wine gem for the price!
