92pt Spanish Red $10- WPW EXCLUSIVE
The Gabriel Martinez Project started from the enthusiasm he has for his homeland, Jumilla, and his recognized expertise in the oenology field.
Gabriel bought vineyards from the area, based on his experience and knowledge. High vineyards and shady areas to get fruit and fresh wines. For the Monastrell he looked for vineyards with an average age of 50 years and with a large size as they are the basis of his project. But for Syrah he preferred young vineyards.
This project in Jumilla is small production, with the emphasis on Monastrell grapes from old vines ( 50+ Years old) and Syrah from young vines (30 years old). Harvested by Hand, Fermented in stainless steel tanks, aged for 5 months in a combination of neutral 330 liters French and American oak barrels.
We have the Florida exclusive on this little gem and at a great price of $10btl when you buy it buy the case. Be quick, only 20 cases are available and it is in stock now!
2017 Gabriel Martinez CR Gold #5 Jumilla
92pts WE, 91pts JS
Powerful blackberry aromas are matched by creamy oak. This Monastrell-Syrah blend is a driller, with strong tannins and more than enough body weight. Oaky flavors of dark-berry fruits and black plums finish with vanilla and lactic notes. This is rock solid from head to toe. Do not miss this wine!
