Tasting:

    He said: Dark ruby red/purple color. Mild dark fruit bouquet. Dry fruit taste that goes into a very long dark cherry, dry finish. Actually it’s an outstanding finish. This has a medium to full body, rich flavors (hints of spice) and nice acid. It’s not “Great” wine, but at this price it’s OUTSTANDING and clearly a bargain wine.

    She said: Wonderful smokey bouquet but little flavor until the wonderful long berry finish. Dry, medium bodied with moderate acidity and tannins. At $5.99 it is a great bargain and I look forward to drinking the second bottle.

    Comments: We like Spanish wines and this is the best low priced red we have found.
