Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

Winery is owned in collaboration with Chris Ringland, Jorge Ordonez, Miguel Gil and others and located in the Valley of La Aragona inside the Murcia district of Jumilla. Very dark almost purple with floral fruit aromas and gentle spice. On the palate blueberry and black cherry flavors, savory with great mouthfeel. 24 months aging on French and American oak, the 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon has fine tannins with earthy mineral tones on a lingering finish. A Fav! Needs more time!

Clean, deep red granate, very long on smell with balsamic, ink and milky hints. Cocoa and coffee in the palate. Very long acidity, meaty, silky and everlasting on mouth. Probably one of the best Monastrell variety samples of Spain. 49€ on a restaurant, totally worth it.

Touch of eucalyptus, good depth of fruit, dark and concentrated but balanced.

Deep ruby/Inky in color with a short purple rim. Strong fruity nose with black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, figs, wood, earth, vanilla, eucalyptus, cola, mint, chocolates, mocha, coffee, black pepper and spices. Great nose. Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and great legs. Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, dried figs, raisins, vanilla, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, cola, licorice, spices, earth and peppercorn. Long finish with firm, yet round tannins and tangy raspberries. What a great wine this is. Beautifully balanced with great complexity with layers of flavors both on the nose and palate. Spicy with a great mouthfeel and good structure. I had this vintage a year ago, and now it's so much better. This might improve in the next couple of years, actually. I loved the tangy finish against the firm tannins. Very tasty. Good right out of the bottle, but so much better after 90 minutes in a decanter. A blend of Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Aged for 22 months in French and American Oak barrels. 15.5% alcohol by volume. $45.

Very bold. Great flavor, but a short pour and then move on. Aspen.
