95The Wine Advocate

...surprisingly floral and ethereal, perfumed and elegant... There are no aromas of oak whatsoever, and the wine is surprisingly fresh, as if the Garnacha helps to contain the power of Monastrell on the gravel soils, adding texture and perfume. This is beautiful.

94Vinous / IWC

A highly perfumed bouquet evokes red and blue fruit liqueur, candied flowers and exotic spices, along with a smoky mineral topnote. Impressively concentrated yet energetic in style, offering sweet, mineral- and spice-tinged boysenberry, cherry, candied lavender and spicecake flavors that open up steadily with air. Sappy, focused and seamless in texture, finishing with harmonious tannins and impressive, floral-driven persistence.

17Jancis Robinson

Monastrell. Smooth and flattering with a rather haunting perfume. Pretty sophisticated.


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.
