Bright and juicy yet dense on the palate. The finish is soft with sweet barrel spice. A nice wine but I'll take the Lesmos every time over this...

Smooth and fruity, easy to drink. Not much character.

When in Valencia!!
Most part Tempranillo, full bodied and spicy. Over 12 months on oak.

Fruity, thin, weak. A bit like Pee Wee Herman - better pedigree though

Very sweet on the nose with cinnamon and nutmeg. Needs to breath. Subtle but tight tannins. Quick release but smooth.

Very mild and smooth wine. Nice to have around for when you don't want to uncork the fancy stuff

Had in a pop up outdoor restaurant in Miami that hails from Madrid. Really felt for a minute that we were in Spain. Nice little wine to go with the paella, carne and pulpit we had.

Really enjoyed this. Light body, earthy tones, fruit condition is barely ripe. And for 11.99?? Yes please.
