Juicy, juicy, juicy. Not at all what you'd expect from Spanish tempranillo and makes you feel like the world can surprise you now and then. Dedicate your drinking of this to those who never help you get to where you are.

Pigs get fat. Hogs get slaughtered. And the Gran Cerdo gets drunk.

White variety. Meh. Didn't have it at the correct temperature most of the night, but definitely an "everyday" wine. No effort to repeat

Juicy, tannic, and dry. Dark fruit and a fair amount of alcohol on the nose.
