1998 Bodegas Olivares Jumilla Dulce Monastrell | Catavino
I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

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.
