Artazuri Navarra 2006
Brilliant bright red color. This is just what I like in a red wine. A harmony of pleasant tannins, deep red fruits and earth. The finish is slightly harsh but melts away quickly leaving me wanting more. And oh, that price. I'm tempted to stockpile this one!
Typical of Navarran rosado, this is fuller in color and weight but still holds true to the region's textbook crispness and freshness. It has fairly big flavors or raspberry and citrus, with a rousing finish. A little more elegance and refinement and we'd be even happier. Wine Enthusiast (7/1/2007) 86 points
Lately I just can't get enough grenache. It must be something in the air. This very inexpensive Navarra was a decent fix. On the nose I was thinking it would be much bigger bodied that it turned out to be - still a fairly large wine. The alcohol at times seemed a little out of whack, but nothing major. Very nice flavors of cherry and... rasberry? blueberry? along with a slight dusty spice. The tannins were average. Would I buy it again? Yes. It's a deal of a wine.
Good fruit and rich spice. A great deal of a wine. Would definitely buy again.
