Basic crianza! Dusty red fruits. Nothing crazy going on here either way. Better with a slight chill.

A little too bold for us. No sweetness. Eating alongside Domino’s may not have helped.

Balanced and nice blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha, sweet buy just to impress when tasting a juicy red grilled beef sirloin. Some fruity flavors, also from red fruits. It is a very good table wine.

Costco, $12

Dark ruby, quite opaque. Dusty wood and fruit on the nose. Medium body, maybe a touch too acidic and just enough tannins. Kind of a savory fruit, reminds me of fruit punch as a kid as far as flavor goes but not in sweetness, it's actually quite dry. Keep tasting fruit punch in a good way and very happy for the price, although Costco probably has it cheaper than it usually is, rating it at the $12 I spent though.

Savory dry red easily paired with your next dinner or movie night. There is a dark cherry appearance. On the nose leather notebook and a subtle scent of eucalyptus. Notes of cinnamon, cedar, blackberry ending with a sharp spicy mustard seed. The Tempranillo blend is medium bodied firm wine with chewy tannins. I found that most Spanish wines are seasy to enjoy and grabbing my attention at the moment. Will buy again.

A fine wine but not one I liked well enough to get again.

Earthy, dry, medium bodied, balanced. Good, but not exciting, tastes almost a bit old.
