He said: Opaque, inky purple color. Meaty dark fruit and mushroom aromas. Deep dry, grape and dark fruit taste. And, a dry dusty full body finish. It’s a WOW, WOW wine. Robust, packed with flavor and fantastic with the blue cheese. Another outstanding Spanish red form the Vila Viniteca Wine Store in Barcelona.
She said: With a huge red fruit aroma this wine enchanted me with the first sniff. It was robust, dry, full bodied and rich in tannins. Untamed is the word that comes to mind when I want one word to describe it. It is wine with abandon, a great choice to accompany cheese and bread.
