BODEGAS Y VINDEDOS DE MURCIA JUMILLA SIERRA CARCHE - 2005
Made in French and American oak. 50% Monastrell, 25% Malbec, and 25% Petit Verdot.
Dark purple-red color. Goji berries and sour cherries on the nose. Lots of cherry, oak, black pepper, intense blueberry-grape jam, pencil shavings, chocolate covered raisins, blackberry, black currant. Sweet tannins at the core. Black cherry candy on the finish. A wine with great finesse and power.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Complexity abounds. There is a lot going on here and all quite harmoniously. Really a pleasant surprise. This wine rocks and delivers on balance, structure, flavors and aromas. The alcohol is also in check. For $30 this wine delivers the goods. Highly recommended.
