The Almanzora Este 2007 was light to medium bodied and earthy similar to an Oregon (USA) pinot but with slightly stronger fruit flavors tasting of boysenberry and cherry (after almost 1 hour decanting). After decanting wine had reasonable balance, however, the mourvedre and tempranillo seemed to compete more than cooperate. Initial nose had a sweet, slightly burnt fruit and spice aroma along with a hint of mild dusty forest. Both the nose and the taste were mild but obvious; taste had a boysenberry-cherry flavor whose intensity increased over time but never exceeded the mild leather and earth notes. Wine was smooth and round in the mouth, not harsh, with dry tannins. Finish lasted maybe 4 seconds and faded with a slightly bitter, faint fruit, wood, even a stone taste. At $8 or $9 I might buy this wine again if I can pair it well with a dish. Dishes that pair well with a dry, mild Oregon (USA) Pinot Noir might work.
