A pleasant bottle of wine that delivers up aromas of blueberry, dark cherry, dark chocolate, and sweet baking spice. Medium bodied, it's got decent acidity but the tannins are a little much. Not bad, especially for the price, but the oak is a little to apparent for my taste. Tasted March 2012.

A nice powerful red wine from Jumilla where the vines get a powerful douse of southern Spain sunshine. Like Flo Rida working the paving crew. It's dark, smells like smoke and tar and the deep bass notes linger in your head. Oh oh, sometimes ... I get a good feeling, when I open a bottle of wine. This is wicked if you break it down with a rare roast beef and a side of roast potatoes.

This is a usually-reliable Spanish red; pleasant if not overwhelming, and decent value.

This one was aged longer in bottle than I would normally recommend for the blend. Having said that, it was still holding its own quite well.

Earthy, oaky notes predominate, with lots of dark mushrooms. The fruit is much more muted, with cherries and over-ripe blackberries predominant.

Smooth finish, tannins are present but not nearly as chewy as when younger. Fruit fallen away slightly, leaving this a little less vibrant.

A good showing; a couple years past ideal drinking window.

Tasted November 2014
