A delicate flower of a wine. Hardly. Brutish but lovely fruits here. Not my style but sometimes you gotta go here.

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 & gentle spice. On the palate blueberry & sweet black cherry flavors, savory with great velvet mouthfeel. 24 months aging on French & American oak, the 70% Monastrell and 30% Cab Sauvignon has fine tannins with earthy mineral tones on a lingering finish. A Fav! The ‘15 is drinking great now!

Red cherry color. Balsamic, spicy, aged fruit on smell. Long acidity, very well balanced, silky on mouth. A great choice for our 5th wedding anniversary. Keep it safe until a great celebration comes. To pair with red meat. Great!

Awesome oak to flavor balance... Wanted more than a glass.

Noticeable oak treatment, tannin and heat. Not loving it. There’s big, monolithic but approachable reds and there’s cough syrup. This trends towards the later.

A personal favorite. Dark red color with intense aromas of ripe fruit, floral notes and perfume spice. Aged for 24 months on French and American oak, the 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon blend shows sweet cherry and blackberry flavors, rich with notes of espresso and toasty oak. Fine tannins, savory, well balanced, developing with each glass, lingering finish, ending with slight earthy tones. Excellent!
