First drank this in Spain and continue to enjoy it at home. Good all around wine, spicy yet fruity. A keeper.

I'm typically not a fan of reds currently, but this one doesn't have the sharp tastes that many reds have.

Surprisingly good every time. Dry, peppery, full, pleasant. $30 taste in a $10 bottle.

Moderate ruby color. Red berries, red licorice, and hints of earth on the nose. Medium bodied with hot, spicy finish.

Juicy fruitiness early that fell out as it breathed. Slight mineral and medium tannins. Dry finish. Leather on the nose.

This wine makes my tongue feel like it has just trekked across a desert and walked woefully past a mirage oasis. It's also spicy like smoke from a pile of burning leaves in the fall.
