    September 2, 2020 - An outstanding Jumilla, punching far above its weight. Balanced floral with a sweet raspberry core, this has both weight and lightness to be appreciated. Stony undertones make for a clear, bright wine. Enjoy this now as it far exceeds the expectations of its price point.

    March 27, 2020 - Not flawed but not doing much for me. It was initially interesting with a smoky gamy profile, but for the age tannin came across a bit sharp, then a steep dive on a somewhat "watery" finish. just generally out of balance.

    September 8, 2019 - Ripe plum, strawberry and blueberry fruit with nice floral aromas. Drinking well now. Turning the corner to the raisiny character.

    March 6, 2019 - Dark ruby with mild clearing - appears unfiltered
    Medium aromas of dusty raisinated cherry and smoke - medium oak influence
    Sort of a cardboard aroma which does not blow off but doesn't appear corked otherwise
    Medium(+) palate of sweet red fruit
    Medium(+) acidity and great length with medium/medium(+) tannins
    This is a nice representative but a little ripe/ raisinated in my opinion to be deemed a quality wine

    Interesting to see my tasting notes and the difference I am now seeing with previous CT notes…Maybe an off bottle or just not my type of wine

    March 4, 2019 - Single blind tasting
    Purple brown color with clear rim
    Medium aromatics of dark prunes. Some oak and an issue with cardboard.
    Medium + acidity. Medium tannins
    Palate of smoke, dark ripe fruits and chocolate.
    Rounded mouth feel with reasonable finish.
    I feel the nose created the lower score.
