Winemaker Notes

Deep and intense red with a violet edges. This wine has a nose of dried flowers, paprika and minerals. The palate is soft yet with firm tannins. Flavors of complex spices with a hint of tobacco. The finish is full-bodied, with a fine and lengthy finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Jumilla

Famous for the robust and earthy, black-fruit dominated, Monastrell (known as Mourvedre in France), Jumilla is an arid and hot region in southeastern Spain. Its vine yields tend to be torturously low but this can create wines of exceptional intensity and flavor. Quality combined with accessible price points give the region great recognition on international markets far and wide.

The reds from Jumilla are heady and spicy, packed with fruit and show aromas of dried licorice and herbs. If you like Syrah, Grenache or Pinot noir, a red wine from Jumilla would be a perfect next choice!

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
