Clio Jumilla Monastrell-Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

Ming L
9.0

Someone wanted a red instead of a dessert wine to go with the berry chantilly cake, and I though the Clio has the richness and depth of flavor to make it work.
Not bad as it turned out. The ripe black fruits and dark chocolate from the wine complement the delicate vanilla and fresh berry flavor from the cake well.
Always a hedonistic wine, the 18’ is a bit hot on the finish - 16% abv making its presence felt.

Barahonda Summum Monastrell 2019

What an extraordinary wine! I would highly recomend it. It’s a bit pricy and the winery Barahonda has a great selection of wines in more affordable price ranges. I have tried a couple of them and they are also excellent. The wine is very complex and smooth. — 21 days ago

(Silver Label) Jumilla Monastrell 2019

Last night I opened this 2019 Juan Gil Silver Label Monastrell. This is from the Bodegas Juan Gil Jumilla, Spain, 100% Monastrell (Mourvèdre).

On the nose there is black plum, blackberry, blueberry, black pepper, violet, gravel and earth.

On the palate there is blackberry, blueberry, plum, black cherry, black pepper, spice, soft oak, gravel and earth.

This is a full bodied wine with a smooth sweet juicy mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium supple tannins that move smoothly into a long black & red fruit earthy finish. We are on another weekend and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Goru Gold Monastrell Blend 2017

Bright, bing cherry color, copious legs on the swirl, subtle notes of chocolate covered cherries on the nose. Easy sipping, dry, cherry pits with hints of plum, smooth tannins on the finish. Pleasant wine with Mexican re-do dinner on the lanai with Tim and Kendra — a month ago

Hoya Finca Hoya de Santa Ana Monastrell Blend 2020

On first opening, bouquet of black cherry and blackberries, Big Red cinnamon gum, bell pepper, and smoky bowling alley; palate of black cherry and plum, char, and black tea with a medium-short finish. On the second day the candy and bell pepper smells taper, bowling alley becomes more of a whiff of pipe smoke, blackberry bramble emerges with spent firecrackers; on the palate the black pepper spice has some herbs de provence, black tea tannins are rounder and the cherry flavor more tart, a fuller body on the finish with notes of char, meat fats, and pepperoni spices. Was gonna go with 89 but it’s impressive once you decant for a day. — 2 days ago

Honoro Vera Jumilla (Organic) Monastrell 2019

Nice wine. Super black color. Full flavor but not complex enough and not enough of a bite for a higher rating. Tasted 29 May 2022. — a month ago
