Equis Red Blend Vino de la Tierra de Castilla Equis Viñas Viejas 2005

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Full medium ruby. High-toned aromas of blackberry, pepper, graphite and smoky oak, along with a faint greenness. Sweet and rather fine-grained in texture; suave and nuanced for such a superripe, distinctly warm wine. Finishes with substantial but nicely ripe tannins.

A custom cuvee assembled by importer Eric Solomon, this blend of 40% Bobal, 20% Merlot, and equal parts Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Tempranillo exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, full-bodied, inky, concentrated, black fruit flavors, wonderful sweetness and purity, and a heady, long finish. A big, stylish red made on the border of Yecla and La Mancha, it is undeniably a fabulous value. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Full ruby-red. Floral, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis and licorice. Juicy, spicy and high-pitched, with slightly hard-edged but intense dark berry and licorice flavors lingering nicely on the firmly tannic finish.

This cuvée of Bobal, Monastrell, and Garnacha is unfiltered to preserve the concentrated aromas, and unoaked to show off the terroir of the region in Spain, 100 miles from the Mediterranean.

The 2005 Equis is a custom cuvee selected by importer Eric Solomon. The wine is a blend of 40% Bobal, 20% Merlot, and equal parts Syrah, Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards located between Valencia and Yecla. This purple-colored, unoaked wine offers fragrant scents of black currants, pepper, smoke, blackberry, and black cherry. Full-bodied, inky, and concentrated, it has gobs of flavor and a heady finish. Drink this excellent value over the next 2andndash;3 years.

This incredible value from the La Mancha region of Spain is made from 20-80 year-old vines of Bobal, Mazuelo (Carignan), Garnacha (Grenache), and Tempranillo. Bottled unfiltered, it features plenty of ripe red and black cherry fruit flavors.

Dark red. Fresh, racy red berry aromas lifted by a mineral note. Juicy, clean and almost sweet in its display of pure red fruits. Light to medium in weight and delicious. Finishes brisk, with gentle tannins and lingering notes of wild strawberry and redcurrant.
