Reviews and Ratings

James Marentette rated this wine as 94/100
Nick Hirons rated this wine as 92/100
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Made from 100% Mourvedre grapes, deep purple and opaque, this fantastic wind from Spain is worth keeping a few bottles on hand. Aromas of blueberry preserves, plum and earthy notes. The palate is full-bodied with flavours of blueberry, cassis with a hint of herbs on the finish. Tasted September 2016.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Deep purple colour with a deliciously sweet smoke aroma of warm plum sauce. The wood toast carries through in the full bodied mouth. The tannins are well integrated. Tastes like juicy black plums and earthy blueberries. Medium long finish. Score 91. (S.Segard, Reviewed March 27, 2017).
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Fantastic Monastrell from the Yecla, a great source of value wines from Spain. This wine features loads of black and blue fruit, herbs, earth and mineral. A long, seductive finish. More generous than wines from the Bandol. This is Mourvèdre's home. 91 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep purple goodness, dry and balanced , with a pronounced aroma of black cherry, blackberry, vanilla, milk chocolate, a bit of smoke and sweet spice. Tastes as good as it smells; lots of black fruit, sweet spice and milk chocolate, all nicely balanced. Wonderful with a charcuterie board of mixed salami, capocollo, mature English cheddar, olives and Brie. Because of its balance, it would be a wonderful sipper on its own.
This full-bodied red wine is made from 100% Mourvedre grapes grown in organic vineyards. Source: Winery
