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.
Oaky and pleasant. Spicy finish.
First off, this review is being well after I quaffed this wine (i'm trying to get my 5 reviews in) ... I only remember it because we served this wine at our wedding a few years back and I remember loving it ... I checked out a bunch of wines over a couple of months and settled on this one (2001) and I kept buying more of it when I found it ... and I always enjoyed it. In fact, somehow I just have found myself drawn to the 2001 Spanish reds in general, so hopefully that offers a little perspective. If you find a bottle of it somewhere, give it a go and I don't think you'll be disappointed. If I ever find another bottle of it, I will try to give it a proper review.
