Juan Gil Jumilla 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose of raspberry, allspice, and cinnamon

Juicy core, full-bodied

Mixed berry finish, moderate tannins, and spices

This is a fruity, new world stye of wine. The rich spices from oak are prominent, but still fairly well integrated. The texture is rich and juicy.

Spain produces many good red wines from various regions around the country. Look to Jumilla for bargains $15 and under. I paid $13 for this bottle on a recent trip to Florida, and have seen similar prices on the internet. Raise a glass!

Just had it with an aged rib eye with black olive tapenade and cucumber, tomato mint salad. It was luscious, smooth but spicy without a heavy alcohol tone. Medium body fruity, low on the tannins with great mild spice.
