Bodegas Piqueras founded in 1915 . Our first bottled wine was released in 1961. Under the protective cover of the recently created Denominación de Origin Almansa (regulatory body controlling wine production in the area - set up in 1975) , we were the first winery in the area to invest in oak barrels - buying a hundred, 300 litre oak casks. A new era for our cellar began in 1987 when we started exporting our wines, and has led to enormous changes in the winery. In a relatively short time , we have established our brands in several world markets . Today our wines can be found in 17 countries and exports represent 70 % of our bottled wine production.

I'm drinking this in 2013 - 5 years after release. Shows about 5cm of light orange to cartoon brick red with a dark purple to black center. Fairly slow forming tears that are not stained and are evenly spaced with about 10-15cm distance apart. Not super aromatic - I had to shove my nose in - but smells like healthy red fruit with mild tartness and some red desert dried river soil. No oak smell. Wine sort of falls apart in the mouth..very thin texture without tasting dilute. Almost an explosion of juicy no tannin red fruit with almost no tartness but gripping acidity freshness. This is good and quaff able for the $4 I paid.

Has a vibrant deep color with rich aromas of cassisand sage. On the palate it is full bodied with lingering flavors of ripe plums and black pepper.
