spanish wines have intrigued me lately and this one is no exception. a blend of 50% tempranillo, 25% merlot and 25% cabernet sauvignon, this red has a nose of black cherry, licorice and some nice earthy forest floor. the flavor is black currant and earth with some licorice thrown in as well. nice easy tannins and very drinkable and the price is nice too, selling for $12. well worth a try and this will pair with lots of summer grilled foods, barbecue, and burgers. even pizza.
