1998 Bodegas Olivares Jumilla Dulce Monastrell

  • 1998 Bodegas Olivares Jumilla Dulce Monastrell – Spain, Murcia, Jumilla (6/30/2006)
    Dark purple almost black in color. Incredibly complex wine that reminded me of a port. It is a sensuous wine to me that needs to be appreciated with either a pungent blue cheese or chocolate, but is too sweet and cloying to be appreciated alone. Fortunately, I was able to both try it before a fabulous blue cabrales and after, and my appreciation for the wine increased tenfold after the creaminess of the blue danced with the Monastrell.
