"The 2004 Bodegas Fernandez Escudo de Plata Jumilla Gran Reserva is unlike any other Jumilla we have ever tasted. The wine was produced from very old, ungrafted 100% Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre), is pale in color, and showcases pretty red cherry fruit and an explosive bouquet of herbs, vanilla, spicecake, and sweet tobacco. Six-year aging in 'very old' large American oak barrels resulted in fine tannins and a lingering finish that is at once sweetly floral and intense.

It will be magnificent on your table, especially when paired with herb-rubbed pork loin, rotisserie chicken, grilled sausages or vegetables. Or go native and bust out the paella pan and load it with as much fish and shellfish as you like. The wine's fine tannins and balanced acidity will make it work with a remarkable array of cuisine." -winemaker
"Faded red. Complex, intriguing bouquet of dried red fruits, botanical herbs, spicecake and a touch of vanilla, with a sexy floral overtone. A sweet, sappy midweight that offers silky raspberry and cherry flavors and no rough edges. Finishes with lingering sweetness and an echo of dried flowers. This was raised in large, used American oak barrels for 48 months." -Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
