Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The Monastrell grape has, over time, become the favored variety of Jumilla, in part because it grows successfully in rocky, barren soils where other grapes fail. The vines are trained in the 'baso' system, resembling small baskets set in rows on the white, stony soil. Each vine produces only several clusters each year. The fruit is blue-black and yields intense color and aroma within hours of fermentation. The young wine is remarkably soft and buoyant with fresh blueberry fruit. We have complimented this Monastrell by blending fifteen percent Syrah, as its more rustic character provides earthiness and structure to the wine.

Blend: 85% Monastrell, 15% Syrah
