12’ Fait-Main Las Piedras.
It’s as good if not better then the Schrader LPV / Paul Hobbs LPV. Deep ruby color, pale purple edge. Nose- Black/blue fruits worn leather, come together.
Full-bodied. Blackberry jam, smoke, lavender, black forest cake, melting tannins. Juice flavorful finish. Pour into a decanter for 15/20 minutes. Fabulous expression of this vineyard.

Very pleasantly surprised at how￼￼ much I liked this wine. Heard about Spanish value wines for a while but didn’t think I’d ever found one. This was it. Nice full red with a distinctive Spanish flavor. — 11 days ago
The wine world is so incredibly vast, life’s too short to drink the same thing all the time. Let’s all drink adventurously, shall we? Here’s a great example. Ever heard of the grape Forastera Blanca? Not likely unless you’ve been to a tiny speck of an island off the Altlantic coast of North Africa, named La Gomera. The smallest of the Canary Islands, it is the homeland for this unusua grape that has been revived commercially by Mr. Agustín Farráis. These own-rooted 100-year-old vines yield a wine that smells of pear skin, sea air and dried yellow herbs. Flavors of crushed stone, sea air, citrus pith, and herbs linger with a faint struck-flint note in the finish, as if the wine, in the end wants to make sure you never forget the volcano. — a month ago
