Pretty good Tempranillo, especially for the price. This mellowed out after a few days; I think it's much better after oxygenating a bit!

Update: ended up making this one into a sangria. Perfect with some apples and cinnamon 👌

Supremely chuggable, highly quaffable: wifey says it reminded her of Romanian village wine. Nice acidity, goes well with food.

Delicious and smooth. Great every day red and even goes great with spicy food.

Goes down easy without being dull. Stood up to roasted lamb and mushroom tart, but isn't heavy. Definitely better after oxygenation. Let 'er breathe! Wishing I had a case of this.
