Murcia Pico Madama Red 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Pico Madama is composed of 55% Monastrell and 45% Petit Verdot. The former was aged in American oak and the latter in French oak for 13 months before being bottled unfiltered. The deep purple/opaque color is followed by floral and smoke aromas leading to a full-bodied wine with flavors of blackberry, black currants, licorice and a hint of mineral from the limestone soil. This layered wine is ripe and sweet and should last for another decade. Based on this effort, it would seem that the hard to ripen Petit Verdot does very well in the warm Jumilla climate. By the way, if you should see the 2003 Pico Madama on the shelf, do not hesitate. It is nearly as good as the 2004."
