Jumilla is part of the Murcia region in the Levante province of Spain. It benefits from an arid, but gentle inland climate with some assistance from the nearby Mediterranean. Though it can get quite hot, its elevated plateaus give it some relief, and soil rich in limestone some much-needed moisture. Like its neighboring regions of Yecla and Bullas, the predominant grape grown is Monastrell (the same as France’s Mourvèdre). The Monastrell produced in Jumilla is often considered the best.  

The grapes respond well to these growing conditions and produce some well-structured wines. They are often very dark in color, with rich, plummy and dark berry flavors and tend to have balanced earth tones reminiscent of black olives, dark chocolate and espresso with good minerality to finish them out. Some delicate attention to oak barrel aging can give these wines even further depth. They are often Monastrell single varietal releases, but sometimes blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and/or Read more »

    Snoothrank:

    Wow, This is the first of six bottles we purchased at a small wine store in Saugatuck, MI in Oct. '15. If you see this Spanish red buy it. I am thinking about driving 120 miles in a lake effect snow storm to this wine store to get more advice on inexpensive quality wine. Hats off to this proprietor. Read More
