89pointsCreencia 2015 Con Virtud Dry Farmed Monastrell (Jumilla)

Typical of fully ripe Monastrell from Jumilla, this is a thick, massive wine from head to toe. Prune, blackberry, cassis and raisin aromas push into Port territory, while this is as expected on the palate: heavy, sappy, saturated and seemingly bolstered by tartaric acid. Baked flavors of dark berry fruits, black currant and chocolate finish with the heat and burn that comes with 15.5% ABV. This is recommended only if you like extracted, full-bodied wines; look elsewhere if you want elegance, lightness and a feathery touch. Michael Schachner
