How can a wine be both one of our most popular each year, and a wine most of you have never heard of? It's because we sell every single bottle we get, as soon as it comes in, and it goes to a small handful of savvy buyers. This year, we took a huge stand & bought twice as much as we normally do. In a time when you will start to see shortages from Napa Valley due to the 2020 fires, this will whet the whistle for all the big, bold red drinkers out there.
This is a joint project between the Gil family, who has done so much to put Jumilla on the map with the wines from Finca Luzon, and famed Barossa, Australia winemaker, Chris Ringland. It is a blend of 70% Monastrell & 30% Cab Sauv. The wine exhibits a glass-coating opaque purple color. It has an expressive nose of pain grille, brier, minerality and blueberry and blackberry overtones. This plush, opulent wine has great density, savory flavors and a very lengthy finish that gets better with age.
