Winemaker's Notes

Sweet spices and dark cherries with full bodied flavor usually reserved for wines twice the price; great with red meats. Grapes used for this wine come from old vineyards (average of forty years) from the northeast of Jumilla, placed at 700 metres high in the surronding area of our cellar.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid ruby. An expressive, mineral-accented bouquet displays blackberry, cherry cola and smoked meat, with suave floral and spice qualities that gain strength with aeration. Juicy and nicely focused, with precise dark berry flavors and silken texture. The spice and smoke notes linger on a long, sappy finish. This will benefit from a bit more bottle age or a little air."
