RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

Espresso and loamy earth notes frame the intense flavors of currant and blackberry in this thick red, energized by orange peel acidity and supported by muscular tannins...concentrated, expressive and bold...

93Vinous / IWC

Powerful, spice-accented aromas of dark berry liqueur, candied violet, vanilla and smoky minerals, with a building floral topnote. Fresh, expansive and deeply concentrated, offering palate-staining blackberry, cherry-vanilla and mocha flavors...finishing with outstanding clarity and smooth, steadily building tannins.

92The Wine Advocate

...plenty of spicy and smoky aromas and a lactic touch too...palate is medium to full-bodied, with plenty of tannin...

91James Suckling

Lots of coffee and berry character with walnut and spice undertones. Full body. Flavorful and delicious.

REGION

Spain, The Levant, Jumilla

Jumilla is in the province of Murcia, and there are 80,000 vineyard acres within the appellation. The appellation takes its name from the municipality of Jumilla and it enjoys long hot summer and cold winters, with weather tempered by the Mediterranean Sea. The land is made up of wide valley and plateaus, with vineyards mostly between 1,000 and 2,000 feet. Having been awarded Denominación de Origen status in 1966, it is one of Spain’s oldest appellations, and it has long been noteworthy for its rich, tannic, red wines made from Monastrell, the Spanish name for Mourvèdre. The other red grapes authorized under appellation rules are Tempranillo, Garnacha Tintorera, Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Official white wine grapes are Airén, Macabeo, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Moscatel, Pedro Ximénex and Malvasia. Producers including El Nido and Bodegas Luzon have made Jumilla go-to appellation for savvy wine buyers looking for high quality at modest prices.
