Red blend. Smooth and super concentrated. Was priced at $15.99. Deep plum color and pretty long finish. Decanting would rock this wine. Read more

I tried this at Wine Spectator Magazine's "Grand Tour -2009" in Chicago. This wine scored a whopping 92pts according to Wine Spectator Magazine. I have been told by several non-WS magazine folks, this rating should be in the neighborhood of 90. Anyway for $15 you can not go wrong and I have bought a couple since. I really like it. Its perfect for sitting on the deck and sharing with someone special. However, this wine is far from a keeper, or a special occasion wine, i.e. promotion, graduation, Apocalypse...whatever! :) This wine will impress someone who knows little to nothing about wine. This wine will dissapoint someone who seasoned and is critical of the rating system. Remember, it's just a bottle of wine. Enjoy it! BTW, you can find other wines from the same region in Spain that are similar in price and taste but better! I'm not trying to discourage this particular wine, just thinking out loud. -TF

The blend creates a unique wine that is not dominated by any one of the grapes. For a hot wine (14.7%) it is still pretty soft.

Dark red. Smoky, spicy aromas of licorice-tinged cherry and rhubarb. Fresh and tangy, with nicely focused bitter cherry flavor accented by leather, cured meat and succulent herbs. Powerful, structured and long on the finish, with the concentration and focus of wines costing twice as much.

The 2006 Crianza Seleccion is purple-colored with a fragrant nose of cedar, spice box, black cherry, and black currant. Smooth-textured, savory, and ripe, it has excellent depth, concentration, and length. It will evolve for 2-3 years and be at its best from 2010 to 2016.

Dense and balanced, this polished red carries plum, blackberry, black pepper and tar flavors. Muscular tannins are well-integrated, and fresh acidity carries coffee, floral and mint notes through the finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. Drink now through 2014.

Winemaker's Notes:

Score: 90 Points (IWC) Tasting Notes: Blackberry and blueberry aromas are complicated by incense and dried flowers. Juicy dark berry flavors are liqueur-like in richness, with nervy minerality adding energy. Becomes fleshier and sweeter on the finish, which echoes the floral note.
