This had new world all over it and it ended up being Spanish. Typical American oak nose, but also some mint. Vanilla extract (but not too much) and blueberries, alongside smoked meats. Awesome value.

Sipping Fine Wine

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.

Spanish tapas in Paris. This is great. Doesn’t taste like a Spanish wine or old world for that matter. More like a California Syrah Cab mix.

Delicious with the grilled steaks but could still use a few years aging.

17/20 (92/100) Парфюмный, сладкий аромат с нотами кассиса, чернослива, красных цветов, кокоса, ванили и шоколада. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью и интенсивными, но мягкими по текстуре танинами. 30% каберне совиньона побороли монастрель и именно кабсов задаёт характер вину. Получилось мощно, фруктово, ванильно.
