Tarima Monastrell

A Spanish red from Alicante, this 100% Monastrell (Mourvedre in France) comes without a vintage indication, although I strongly suspect that it's quite young. It's a decent enough wine, typical of the dark colored, full bodied qualities associated with the grape, with cherry and raspberry elements, and a touch of licorice in the finish, but, as we in PA have come to expect, at $9.99 it's egregiously overpriced, being available for three dollars less in a lot of places. Has anyone kept tabs on how our governor is doing on his other campaign promises?
