Like other reviewers said, and the lady in line with me said, this is a very well priced wine that tastes more than that. Less fruit forward than my tastes prefer, but still pretty good! We had it with braised short ribs, and cooked with it, too. Certainly a value red.

Very smoky, with rich black fruit compote notes.

Got this at the Wine Club over a year ago for a very reasonable price. A bit unusual but delicious. A warm earthy, jammy nose. P: vanilla, wood, baking spice, jam and a pinch of sawdust. I hope I can find this one again.

Very nice blend of Monastrell Garnacha and Tintorera. Full bodied with burst of black berries. Nice finish. Smooth and pleasant to the palate. Great with grilled steaks.

Very good price. Medium tannin less fruit forward. It does seem a little flat and muted to me.
