"Saturated ruby. Smoky, spice-accented aromas of cherry, cassis and anise, with a subtle mineral quality in the background. Pliant and expansive, offering deep dark fruit flavors and showing a creamy texture. Sweet and penetrating on a youthfully tannic finish with distinct licorice and cherry notes."
"The 2009 Hecula is 100% Monastrell grown in Jumilla and aged in French and American oak. Expressive aromas of underbrush, brier, mineral, lavender, and blueberry lead to a savory, ripe, nicely proportioned red with excellent volume and length. It is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 4-5 years."

|Wine maker notes
|Attractive intense picota cherry red, radiant.
Complex nose, black fruits (bluberries, blackberries), minerality, spiced (cloves, black pepper) with very well integrated wooden notes.
Smooth in the mouth, with weight in each of its phases, meaty with notable but smooth tannins. Long and persistent finish.
