Winemaker's Notes

50% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Tempranillo

Jumilla is in the Southeast of Spain Between Valencia and Murcia. This warm region is known for making wonderfully rich and fleshy textured red wines.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Vina Honda Crianza is a blend of 50% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Tempranillo aged in cask for eight months. Purple-colored, it exhibits a complex aromatic array of cedar, tobacco, mineral, black cherry, and blueberry. Layered on the palate, it has tons of ripe fruit, plenty of spice notes, excellent balance, and a pure finish. It will continue to blossom over the next 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2010 to 2017. "

A full-bodied, jammy red with an earthy aroma and blueberry flavor and a delicate finish, it's great to drink by itself!

Fruit forward and juicy with sweet dark berry flavors. I can't put my finger on it but the mid-palate taste somewhat disjointed to me. There is a nice finish. I will cellar my other bottle for a year or so. Maybe it will get better.
