Dark purple with a semi opaque rim. Clean and clear with a moderately intense nose of wood smoke, spice box, lavender and plum. Bright fruit, quenching acidity fill the mouth with kirsch, blackberry, balsamic and toasted oak. The finish is subtle and longer than expected.

Nice bouquet and richly fruited mid-palate, but the alcohol makes an appearance on the back end and mars an otherwise enjoyable QPR wine.

I gave this 15 or 20 minutes and then decided if I was going to drink wine tonight, then it wouldn't be this. 4 hours later and the nose is more Alto Moncayo than Alto Moncayo... Banana-Vanilla Creme Pie on steroids. Unfortunately it doesn't quite carry the weight of Alto on the palate, but at $12, is a comparison anything but unfair? This is shockingly good and a completely different wine than what I tasted 4 hours ago.

Capa media y densidad media baja, en nariz buena potencia, frutas rojas maduras, maíz tostado y notas de cacao. En boca entrada golosa y carnosa, paso equilibrado y final correcto y agradable.

Ripe dark fruit with round tannins but a touch acidic before a lush finish.

Charnu, boisé. Un peu rond mais pas trop, me faisait douter pour le taux de sucre résiduel... 1.9 g. Finalement ! À refaire avec une bonne bouffe qui a du corps. Belle robe !

2009. Went searching for a wine in the cellar to braise a roast and to make sangria per my wife and daughter’s request. Tried and rated on its own, this inexpensive wine had aged very well and we all enjoyed the taste we had. The sangria was delicious!
