2007 Bodegas Carchelo ‘C’ Jumilla DO, Spain
You may think we are obsessed with Spain but we simply can’t resist all the fantastic values it has to offer. From the south-eastern region of Jumilla, Bodegas Carchelo blends the local Monastrell variety with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Juicy cherry and blackberry notes recall the real thing while a slight earthiness adds some intrigue. It gives meaning to the expression ‘crowd pleaser’. Available exclusively at Marquis Wine Cellars. Get it while it lasts!
$17.90 (CSPC #1010087)
