2013 Juan Gil Monastrell, Jumilla Spain.

I have a bad habit when I'm roaming my local wine shops. I like to pick up a few bottles to taste and my local wine shop starts giving discounts at six bottles, so I always end up looking for a last bottle or two to round out the number to six bottles.

I decided I wanted to try another Spanish wine so I went to the Spain section. After poking around a bit, I found this rather bland labeled wine. 2013 Juan Gil Monastrell from Jumilla.

Tasting Notes:
Hues of Ruby and Violet with gratuitous scents of blueberry, plum, and black cherry. Powerful flavors of dark fruits, citrus zest, and late earthen mineralities flourish with this wine.

Final Thoughts:
Wow! For $15US, this is an incredible deal! It's not silky smooth like some of the really great wines, but this wine is an eye opener. Big and bold and just great tasting and very aromatic. If you see it sitting on the self at your local wine shop and you love trying new wines. You would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't pick up a bottle to try.

2012 Mythic Estates Block Malbec

I've had a few Mythic wines and while many tend to be popular. I've found them mostly good, but nothing that I found really special. Today's wine is probably the most expensive one I've tried so far, but it's not a budget buster either at around $29US.

Tasting Notes:
Medium bodied and violet in color with a peppery black plum on the noise. On the palette, a black cherry and blueberry mix with hints of pomegranate. Potent bouquet of flavors, yet lean on body and texture.

Final Thoughts:
Malbec wines (beyond blends that include Malbec) are a wine that I'm only lightly familiar with as I've only tried 10-20 of them. Some where rough, others were okay, but I haven't had one knock my socks off. This one is better than most that I've had. I like this wine, though I can definitely see why it's a popular blending wine. The Malbec grape has a lot of interesting characteristics that can give red blends a lot of depth. Maybe if one day my winemaking skills reach the point of making real red blends.

+David Brown well, that's exactly my point !
Keeping my eyes open, in case something really great comes along.
I really hate to discriminate against any grape 😜

Digging through old photos from when I first started representing the fine wines of Bordeaux (thought not Château Pétrus). Bottom: View of Château Ausone vineyards. Micro climate is one reason the wines are so amazing even in difficult years. Adore both father and daughter and their wines, of course.

Very civilized! Okay, fun too! Love the idea of extra dry. Any thoughts on pink Prosecco? Not my area of expertise.

+Rasmus Poulsen I know exactly what you mean, I find myself shifting to other wines and styles as well.
But I believe these people are making a very high quality wines at great bargain prices. I think the last one I've tried was Carmenere and it was simply outstanding.

Good memories of my stay at Château de La Dauphine, Fronsac, situated in it's own park (pond and all). View from my window (top center).

I’m finishing up this delightful bottle of #RioMaggio 2013 Pecorino on this fine #WineWednesday. Pecorino is a white grape variety native to the Marche region of central Italy. The grape is naturally low-yielding and known for its aging potential. The wine pours a light straw yellow color. It is round and rather broad textured in the mouth, with fine acid balance. It leads with appealing floral notes, fennel seed and citrus blossom. There’s a trailing honeyed nuttiness that run through the finish. Served and enjoyed this intriguing white wine at 57°. Cheers!

That's like missing the boat to Manhattan. As +Margaret P.  said. That is a shame. Especially since it had the chance to age that long. That's a tough sell for me! :)
