Inky purple. Spicy dark berries and cherry on the nose, with strong black cardamom and cumin qualities. Candied blackberry and rose flavors are gently firmed by soft tannins and pick up a peppery note with air. Suave and immediately accessible, with very good finishing sweetness and cling. This is a first release from a winery jointly owned by the Gil family of Jumilla and importer Jorge Ordonez.

I tried very hard to like this wine. But I was confronted and quickly put off by the intense spice and pepper which overwhelm to a fault. Savoring the developing flavors in the mouth is normally a satisfying experience. But here, the spice and pepper do not let up. They continue to build in a strange, uncool way. I enjoy earthy, smokey flavors, but this wine is something else. This is a food wine, if it's drinkable at all. Cheese was helpful, but I finally settled on dried cherries. The sweetness countered the spice and pepper. But that's alot of effort just to make a wine approachable. A better solution, I think, would be to just select a different wine.
