This is a nice, funky red wine from Spain. “Ke” Roble Oak Jumilla 2011 is a smooth drinking, fun red blend containing mostly Mourvedre and Syrah grapes.
The wine is cold fermented and aged for 3 months in French and American Oak (producers’ notes).
Good quality wine for its price.
Produced and bottled by R.E., Jumilla, Spain.

This is a 100% Tempranillo. I’m a big fan of tempranillo wines and most of those wines I have tasted were all pretty good.
I usually don’t review bad wines, but I had to make an exception. The “El Furioso” 2009 tempranillo with its cool label has a gross “candy-like” flavor and will give you one of the worst headaches ever.
The bottle is also fairly light, so that could be a reason that this wine did not age well.
Ananto (Valencia) 2009 is a 60/40 blend of Bobal and Syrah grapes.
The Bobal grape is native to the Utiel-Requena region in Valencia. The name is derived from the Latin word bovale, which refers to the shape of a bull’s head. The grape is resistant to extreme weather and diseases and gives wines acidity and fragrance.
This red blend has a pleasant dark fruit fragrance and is acidic with lots of raspberry and cherry flavor. It has medium tannins and the wine goes well with hors d’oeuvres and tapas.
