Huge value red #wine blend.

#Greneche #Monastrell mix. Dark , wild berry aromas. Opaque in the glass , shiny sheen. Palate is moderate with medium body, mild tannin and deceiving acid. More tart, dark fruit flavors. Good structure. Opened 3/23/17

Insane value from Spain. Rich fruit, forest floor and mushrooms. Way more grip and presence on the palette than I would expect from a wine this price.

Big wine. Ripe bing cherry predominant flavor. Wine is not together yet. Needs lots of time. Was hoping for something more elegant
