"At a low price, a Spanish red (appellation jumilla, south of Valencia) generous, rich and full-bodied, fruity and liquorice notes engaging well. A very good buy!"

 

Doug Sloan, Campbell River Mirror, Oct/2016

"From Jumilla - one of the fastest rising regions in modern Spanish winemaking - Pasico Monastrell Shiraz (536664) $10.99 blends Monastrell (aka Mourvedre) and Shiraz (aka Syrah) grapes into a mouth-filling red that oozes black cherry and plum fruit that just keeps coming on before sliding into sage and savoury spices. This would be perfect with New York steak!"
