i tasted this 100% tempranillo from spain back in march as part of an all spanish wine tasting. this one sees just a little oak, making for a big fruit wine. the nose had some nice floral notes of violets, along with lots of fruity strawberry and raspberry. the palate was loaded with juicy fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry. firm tannins with a nice leather and black licorice finish makes this an excellent wine for those nights when you just want something fun to enjoy with a pizza or burgers. sells for about $10.
