This wine used to come from Jumilla and contain Monastrell in addition to Shiraz and Tempranillo; now it's from Extremadura, with Carignan instead of Monastrell. It's rudimentary on the nose and scouring in the mouth, with firm tannins and sharp acids. The palate pulses with raspberry and plum fruit, then finishes with resiny grip and oaky flavors.
