    Varietal: Mourvedre

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 117301

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby color. Ripe, powerful scents of red and dark fruits, minerals and spices. Finishes fresh and long, with a repeating dark fruit note. An exceptional combination with red meats and stews.

    The heat-loving Monastrell is known as Mourvèdre in France's Rhone valley. Jumilla records show that Monastrell was used at least as early as the 15th century. Like the Rhone, Jumilla gets extremely hot during the summer days, but because of the 1,500 foot elevation, nights are very cool. This allows the grapes to become physiologically ripe, yet maintain their acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Glass-staining purple. Powerful dark berry preserve aromas, with pungent floral and herbal qualities adding complexity. Alluringly sweet in the mouth, with deep blackberry and candied cherry flavors showing impressive intensity and power. The lingering, lucid finish features broad, velvety tannins. Displays wonderful pliancy and focus, and has the depth to age.

    Deep dark ruby color, big fruity aroma, full-bodied, dry, peppery, succulent, with a long finish and enough complexity to be interesting. Excellent value.
