From the vineyards placed at 700 metres above sea level in the surrounding area of our cellar, located at the northeast of Jumilla, the wine obtained with the grapes of Monastrell spends 4 months in French and American oak barrels. Intense deep red cherry colour. Powerful in nose, clean and complex. Very attractive fruity aromas, touchs of ripe fruit and reminds of new wood. Well-balanced, soft tannins and very long finish. Pair with: Rice, pasta, (noodles, spaghetti, macaroni), vegetables, mushroom, stewed meat, sausage, pork, roast meat, red and/or white meat with sauces, grilled meat, short or medium cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastBlack plum and boysenberry aromas come with notes of grass and latex. On the palate, this Monastrell from a cool, tough vintage is bulky, with hard tannins. Foxy, woody flavors of berry fruits are topped with clove and spice, while the finish is oaky, toasty, chocolaty and ultimately a touch bitter.

Wine SpectatorA plush texture carries ripe, sweet flavors of blackberry jam, kirsch and chocolate in this fruit-forward red. Toast and cola notes linger. Gentle tannins and balsamic acidity lend structure. The best of three bottles tasted. Drink now through 2018. 30,000 cases made.
