    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep red cherry color. Complex aromas of raspberry, mulberry and liquorice. Intense juicy blackberry flavours. Squashy acidity and long aftertaste.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Hecula is 100% Monastrell grown in Jumilla and aged in French and American oak. Expressive aromas of underbrush, brier, mineral, lavender, and blueberry lead to a savory, ripe, nicely proportioned red with excellent volume and length. It is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 4-5 years.

    Ruby-red. Intensely perfumed aromas of raspberry, cola and fresh flowers. Juicy and precise in the mouth, offering sweet red berry flavors and a touch of floral pastille. The floral note comes back on the long, penetrating finish, which features a spicy quality and zesty minerality. This is quite complex for the price.

    Well made fruity wine with lots of blueberry and cola flavors. Excellent for the money. Would buy again.

    Wow. This wine was undrinkable. Something must have gone wrong, because the reviews were good. The 2009 Hecula had the most bizarre flavor, overwhelmingly unpleasant, but not like a wine that had been corked.
