Bodegas Piqueras Garnacha Tintorera Almansa Castillo de Almansa 2008
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.

Vibrant in color, full bodied, richly aromatic of cassis and sage, and has lingering flavors of ripe plums and black pepper.
