$12.99 at WFM Rocky River. Excellent, opened up into smooth, luscious fruit (a fully ripened plum, oak, spice) with a sustained, oaky (yet not super bombed out oak) smooth finish with the right amount of tannic polish. Not as full bodied as one might imagine, but still ripe with its age (11 years!). Great value.

2005. and strong enough with potential to store longer! This is absolutely criminal at only $11. Buy it if you can find it! Aromas of blackberry, cerise, cocoa, tabacco. Tastes amazing! great deep red fruits balanced witha nice figy, cedar undergrowth & vanilla. Mouth feel is spot on. phenomenal! balanced acidity and even tannins....full to medium bodied.

Another gem from Costco. A 2005 Tempranillo. Such a perfect balance of oak, and luscious fruits. Polished tannins and that unique feeling in the corners of your mouth (in a good way). Like almost salivating for more. I'm grabbing several more of these to stow away. I assume they could develop a bit more. #cheers #wine

Smells like a fruity Rhone, with wonderful spice on the finish. Delish!
