Predominant TART cherry pie with a bit of dark fruit and a hint of mineral. Fun, but not something I’d drink all night.

This was my wife's random pick.
Easy drinking, soft tannins, earthy, and soft dark fruits.

Drank after a Pinot. This was much more flavorful, which I preferred. Still was smooth and fruity.

I love all reds, but I am not sure if I just have a subpar bottle, but this one is not really for me. I am drinking it anyway, but every so often I get a hint of smoked fish with this wine. So if you are eating fish this might be perfect, but it's a bit too meaty in flavor to drink without a fish dish or some kind of food. Might just be this particular bottle. Smells like berries so maybe I just haven't let it breathe long enough. It's very cheap though so maybe save it or let it breathe for a bit before drinking.

I had several Spanish wines lately. Some great, others so so but this one is very enjoyable . It pair nicely with food without being overpowering. Try it, you won't regret it.

Seems better than the last time I tasted this one.
