2017 Bodegas Olivares Monastrell Dulce Jumilla (500ml) (Previously $28)

SKU #1511747 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The notes of tomato vine and black olives are always a giveaway for their sweet Monastrell, of which I tasted the 2017 Dulce Monastrell, a sweet wine that has the tannin and structure of the dry red wines from the region balanced by some 230 grams of acidity and fortified to 16% alcohol. The tannins and alcohol make the wine come through as balanced and not as sweet as you might imagine given the amount of sugar it has. This is bottled unoaked and matured exclusively in bottle. It's the Mediterranean alternative to a young Ruby Port. (LG) 93+ Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

A late harvest 100% Monastrell dessert wine that is produced only when the conditions allow, about 5 to 6 vintages per decade. Winery tasting note: "This Dulce is the ultimate expression of Monastrell, with tremendous concentration, persistence and balance. Cherry-red color, with carmine and maroon tones. Complex smelling, the aroma of figs, dates and ripe fruits can be smelled with intensity and freshness. It combines perfectly with all kind of desserts, specially those made with chocolate, and for contrast, with blue and aged cheeses."
