Heavy bottle warning! Spicy nose of white pepper, meat and wet wool. Spicy, still tight (decanting or letting breathe should do the trick). A very deep rich licorice wine. Hard to validate while this freshly opened, but fruit seems too restrained behind the dominant tannins and meaty flavors. After an hour the wine had opened up a little, there's more fruit, but its still a hot heavy beast.

This is a great wine that has a powerful berry burst and a very smooth finish. Different from other Spanish wines in that it's not as earthy tasting. It's rich, blackberry almost inky color to it that clings to the side of glass. Undertones and after taste are similar to the initial taste. Consistently great all the way through. I received this as a gift so my friend must really like me! I will buy this again and again.

Great bottle for the price. Drink now or hold for a few years.

This is a rich and meaty wine, the way I like them. Not overly tannic, well balanced.

This 100% Monastrell (a.k.a. Mourvèdre in France) bottling from the Jumilla region of Spain comes from old vines grown in chalky limestone. A rich, smoky deep red, this wine pairs perfectly with slow roasted meats on those cold winter nights.

Made of 100% Monastrell (a.k.a. Mourvèdre) in the Jumilla region of Spain, the fruit for this wine comes from old vines grown in chalky limestone. A rich, smoky, deep red, this wine pairs perfectly with slow-roasted meats.

Winemaker's Notes:

Die Aromatik im Bouquet ist verführerisch, lecker und intensiv: reife Fruchtaromen (Kirschen, Zwetschgen) und süssliche Noten von feinen, exotischen Gewürzen strömen aus dem Glas. Die samtige Textur gepaart mit der fruchtigen Struktur bieten viel und überzeugen im Gaumen. Die Frucht, die Gewürznoten und der Schmelz hinterlassen einen spannenden Sinneseindruck im Finale.
