This is a nice example of the Mourvèdre that's coming out of Jumilla in southeast Spain. It's fleshy and full, with a welcome earthiness. Flavors of black plum and cherry cover the palate prior to a drying, tannic finish. This wine manages to pick up the pace after airing, always a sign of quality. From Bodegas Huertas.
