Altos Del Cuco Jumilla 2011 Red Wine, $9.90-$13.75, 90 points, appeared with a thin clear circumferential rim with rosewood-red quickly transitioning opaque purple/red all the way to the core.
If an aroma was ever tactile, this Red wine certainly was, with soft floral notes, gentle strawberry, striking rich blackberry, and waking coffee notes: very deep and mysterious.
Near full bodied and nearly a perfect red table wine with good acidity and moderate tannin.
In addition to the flavors having mirrored the aroma, there were tobacco and plum notes that trailed into the juicy finish with hints of spice and the 13.5% alcohol.
Varietals are 40% Monastrell, 30% Syrah, and 30% Tempranillo.
Another great wine bought at Hannaford's Supermarket in Londonderry.
