This Grenache from Spain is always enjoyable. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, wood, spices, black pepper and light earth.
Full bodied with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with a nice mouthfeel.
Nice finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.
Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier as it opens up.
A nice and easy drinking red wine. A good porch wine.
15% alcohol by volume.

Deep Ruby, aromas of sweet red and black fruits with pepper spice and oak. 4 grape blend from some of CVNE's best vineyards in the Rioja Alta (85% Tempranillo, rest Garnacha, Mazuelo & Graciano), aged in both French and American oak for 24 months. On the palate flavors of blackberry and currants with licorice, vanilla, tobacco & toasty oak tones. Soft full ripe tannins, wonderful balance, lively acidity on a long finish ending with an earthy mineral character. Very nice! Tried several bottles! — 6 days ago
Tempranillo Blanco. A first for me. Aromas and flavors of yellow apple and fresh herbs. Hint of saline and lemon on the long finish. The freshness just lingers! Overly crisp acidity. This wine stimulates the pallet at the same time it is cleansing it. Outstanding! — 22 days ago
Nose has blackberry, ripe cherry, muddy soil, mahogany, cold cigar, (light) green herbs and fig bar.
Palate has wet blackberry, dried blueberries, brown sugar, tobacco leaf and sundried tomato. Decent tannins (yeah I know it's youthful) but ready to go, medium finish length, rich and delicious. — 14 days ago
