Casa Nuestra continues to produce well made, small production, experimental releases of French and Spanish varietals. This is one of my favorites. Opened up to wonderful nose of blackberries with a slight whiff of bacon (which is never a bad thing). On the palate it came alive with boysenberry, blueberry, spice box, rosemary, dark chocolate and smoke. Went beautifully with grilled lamb chops. Flavors are elegant and restrained. Not too alcoholic. Could probably age nicely for a few years, but is good to go now.
