With 65% Garnacha and 35% Cariñena, this spends six months in American oak and nine months in large oak vats. Medium blackberry color. Warm nose with light, attractive oak, red cherries and wild strawberries. Smooth, velvety, mouth filling cherry fruit with firm tannins and a gutsy, rustic finish. Forthright and Spanish/Catalan in style. Exceptional value.

Deep ruby color with a hint of ochre. Rich complex Mediterranean aromas with exuberant notes of spices and blackberries. Velvety tannins are notes on the palate with elegant flavors of licorice and small dark forest fruits (blueberries and blackcurrants).

Abundantly fruity aroma suggestive of wild raspberries, with an earthy hint of spiciness. Generous and smooth on the palate.

Medium red. Slightly roasted, liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, red cherry and pepper. Fat and plump but vinous, with notes of roasted strawberry, fresh herbs and bonfire. Offers noteworthy sweetness in the middle and finishes with dusty but nicely ripe flavors. A very good value from this terrific vintage.

A perennial Best Buy, Sangre de Toro always delivers a quality red-wine experience that does not bowl you over. here the aromas are light and jammy, with strawberry. The body is medium in weight and intensity, with pure but basic cherry, raspberry and plum flavors. Like all other parts of the wine, the finish is easy and clean, with carry-over flavors of berry fruit.

The other "Bull's Blood" is a spicy blend of Grenache and Cariñena. The bouquet offers aromas of sweet sun-ripened cherries and blackberries, while the American oak contributes a touch of black pepper and spice. Eminently enjoyable.

Good full red. Complex if slightly reduced aromas of raspberry, bacon fat, spices and meat, with a hint of surmaturité. Superripe and sweet, with liqueur-like red fruits and spices; a bit roasted but decent acidity gives definition to the flavors. Firmly structured and spicy on the back.
