too many grapes going on in this bottle...terra alta is know for warm days and cool nights...better for whites, not reds. This wine is not outstanding, but....for the price point you get to try a terra alta wine! Which in the long run is an up and coming DO--whites first than reds!
Just came back from spain a few months ago...Terra alta is an up and coming area, but for 20 dollars a bottle I would not drink go out of my way for this wine...However, oriel does have some good wine, this one is a just overpriced...
