• Gutierrez De La Vega 2013 Recondita Armonia

500ML. This dessert wine is made up entirely of Montrasell- Spain's name for Mourvedre. The nose shows a supple black fruit aroma set with light spice and a fruit basket of raspberry and black cherries. The palate has presence to it with ample black fruits, a touch of earth and spice with sweet plums on the finish. D&M Tasting Notes 

The nose is quite varietal Monastrell with freshness, mixing aromas of apricot with something earthy and tree bark-like notes that add some rusticity. This is clearly a lighter year, with less of everything (in general they are reducing their alcohol in their sweet reds); it feels more like a red wine, less sweet with noticeable tannins. I'd have this with hard cheeses. 3,000 bottles produced.

All the wines from Gutiérrez de la Vega are sadly sold without the Alicante appellation, despite being one of the leading quality producers in the region. 91 Points Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate June 2016
