Above all an amazing value at less than $10 a bottle. Spicy cherry nose. About 70% spicy with perfectly balanced brilliant cherries and obese powerful tannins.

Bright fruity blackberries and black cherries on the nose. Gritty sour currants on the palate. Finish is meh.

Cheery and tobacco flavors. Smooth with a long finish.

Decanted around 3 hours, changed from a flat murky wine into a smooth and concentrated, yet clean flavor. Nice oak and coffee nose with notes of tobacco and cherry. Cream and vanilla on the palette with strong notes of ripe cherry. Really long finish that is very pleasant, predominantly cherry with notes of cola, vanilla and cocoa. Great value, even though I paid closer to $12 for this bottle.

This is a standard issue at a tapas bar I frequent. A bold and healthy bodied wine. Simple and great with food as it doesn't compete.

100% Tempranillo; shows dark red with rich strawberry and raspberry notes finishing with a vanillin softness. A perfect partner to roasted meats and stews.

A silky red, light but graceful, with focused cherry, spice and vanilla flavors. In the traditional style, but fresh and clean. Drink now through 2007.

An oaky, modern-style wine with a staunch mocha and vanilla influence, but the fruit is ripe and rich enough to handle it. Spicy and grainy on the nose, with vanilla and resin seeping through. The palate remains woody but is full of berry flavors, while the omnipresent barrel influence carries onto the rich, ripe finish.

This sleek red shows racy flavors of cherry, licorice and vanilla, as well as leaf and cola accents, with gentle tannins and bright acidity. Drink now through 2012.

Auge: dunkelrot mit leichtem Violettreflex; Nase: reiche, komplexe Palette an Frucht-, Menthol-, Balsam- und Gewürznoten; Gaumen: frisch-fruchtiger Auftakt, kraftvolle Struktur mit einem elegant, lang anhaltenden Abgang

Light and rosy in color, with spicy, peppery aromas blending with hints of raspberry and rhubarb, Very much in the leaner, spicier mold; the palate is slight and the finish dry and peppery.
