    Region: Jumilla, Spain

    Varietal: Mourvedre

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 110279

    Winemaker's Notes:

    STYLE: Full bodied red
    COLOR: Deep dark ruby
    BOUQUET: Fine, fresh berry fruit and well-integrated oak
    FLAVOR: Smooth, balanced, silky dark cherries

    VARIETIES: Monastrell 80% Syrah 10% Cabernet Sauvignon 10%
    Monastrell from 40 year old vines, bush planted

    YIELD: Less than 3 ton per hectare

    VINEYARD: Canada del Cerro Blanco. Sedimentary soil rich in granite.
    Hand harvest. Grapes fermented without crushing them first.

    AGING: 8 months in new French and American Oak casks (50-50). Malolactic in the barrels.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Still youthful, this shows its potential in a core of ripe red fruit supported by a thick net of spicy tannin. The texture is generous, the flavors fresh. A textbook example of monastrell to cellar for four or five years, then serve with braised wild boar.

    This was by far one of the most overrated wine's I have ever had in my entire life. From start to finish the Carmine Monastrell seemed to get worse and worse with each glass. This tasted like wine somebody made in a basement from grapes grown in a basement. Next time, just move right past this bottle and never look back. Smooth & Supple is what it was supposed to be - bold and horrible is what it tasted like.
