Albero Jumilla Monastrell 2015, Spain

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $7.
Purple core in color with a lighter purple rim.

Fruity, yet bitter nose of blueberries, red cherries, barnyard, earth, leather, chocolates, smoke, cardamom, green pepper, rust, bitter herbs, spices, red candy and black pepper.

Medium to full-bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Fruity on the attack and dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, earth, wood, forest floor, pencil lead, black tea, peppercorn, herbs, tobacco leaf, rust and alcohol.

Medium finish with soft tannins and bitter vegetables.

A nice Monastrell from Jumilla, Spain. A good food wine, but not necessarily a sipping red wine.

A little too bitter at the ending for my taste, but I enjoyed it with a cheese plate and crackers.

Lots of flavors, but feels simple. If this bitterness will go away in time, this wine will be wonderful. A Good everyday red at a great price. (I bought it for the nice label…)

Needs at least 30 minutes to open up.

Made from 100% organic Monastrell grapes.

14% alcohol by volume.
