I thought Jumilla made "pedestrian" wine. I thought this region of Spain served up plain, ordinary juice, appealing only to the locals. Boy was I wrong! The 2003 El Nido was such a surprise. It's hard to get a hold of, but well worth it!
Ruby in color this Cab/Mourvedre blend delivers a powerhouse bouquet of black fruit and nuts. Cherries and chocolate dominate the palate with hints of clove and sage. A beautiful, well balanced tannic finish makes this Spanish red a special treat. Drinkable the moment you open the cork, even better 2-4 hours in a decanter.
