Based in Jumilla, Spain this winery seperates itself from most Spanish wineries by its use of the Petit Verdot grape, which is used in more than half of their wines. Eclectic yet old world.
Well balanced. Nice sweetness and round tannins.
I am really enjoying this wine. I saw this wine in the Wines from Spain Far From Ordinary Wine Guide. It says that this one is a blend of 40% Monatrell, 25% Tempranillo (which I love), 20% Cabernet Saivignon (my love), and 15% Petit Verdot. The tasting notes are right on point with my experience, as well. At first taste this wine is quite dry. But it has a nice finish. It went well with a very very rich chocolate truffle I had with it. I would love to try this one out with a nice meal.
