2005 Sierra Carche Jumilla

This wine is unlike another Jumilla I've tried. Typically you expect a Jumilla to be very bold, fruit driven styles, however the Sierra Carche is quite the opposite. This softer side of Jumilla comes from blending 25% Malbec and 25% Petite Verdot in with the other 50% Monastrell and is then aged in French and American oak for 13 months. With a dark inky purple color this wine offers a powerful bouquet that jumps out and bites your nose. Notes of toasty oak, pencil lead and tar fill out the flavors of black cherry, blueberry and blackberry accentuate this full bodied structured wine with loads of flavor and a lasting impression. Enjoy now through 2025.

Rating: 9.5 out of 10
