This is 100% Monastrell (also known as Mourvedre) from Jumilla, Spain. It is another excellent red value from outside the main wine growing regions of Spain. Purple/ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has a dusty attic quality along with plums and a bit of iodine. Interesting. On the palate, this has black cherries and plums. A bit of spice. Some acidity. Not a lot of complexity but easy drinking. it should be drunk in the next year or two, but who knows, perhaps a lost bottle will surprise in five years. It is a nice wine for a party or cook out. It should go with most meat and fowl based dishes.
