Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine from Spain is a very nice value wine. It opens with fragrant oak influenced black plum bouquet with a hint of black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild oak influenced black plum with hints of black cherry and cranberry. The finish is dry and its tannins are friendly and slightly prolonged. This wine is a nice weekly red option and would be perfect with steak tips or meatloaf with bacon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Tasting note.- Deep ruby. Ripe, powerful scents of red and dark fruits, minerals and spices. Finishes fresh and long, with a repeating dark fruit note. Food pairing.- An exceptional combination with red meats and stews.
