This is a pretty exciting little Spanish red blend – Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo Merlot and Syrah. It sees about 10 months in French and American oak – and really showcases an array aromas and flavors. I got lots of cedar, vanilla and some cola (yup – as in “Coca Cola) on the nose. Lots of darker or black fruit on the palate (dark red cherry, some blackberry) and just a hint of spice. Plush, fruit forward but still has a savory edge to it. This is one of those wines that with each sip you will be engaged by a different flavor or nuance. Under $15 – this is a great one to try any time!
