Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Tempranillo based wine from Spain is a very good bistro option. It opens with a candied cherry bouquet with a hint of tobacco. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, approachable and a bit juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty plum with notes of oak and refined minerality. I also detected hints of red raspberry and strawberry in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors subtly drift away. This is a good value wine that would pair well with a tangy pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Ruby-red colour with a golden rim. Bright and deep. Complex aromas. There is a great balance between the fruit (cherries, black plums, ripe blackberries) and the clean nuances coming from the wood (clove, pepper, vanilla and coconut). The nose is further enriched by the aromas that develop during bottle ageing. Smooth and balanced on the palate with a full, elegant feel and a long, lingering finish.
