Inky purple with hints of blue. Deep fruit nose with berries, vanilla and a nice slate overtone hovering above it all. Very intense in the nose and it keeps drawing you in. Med weight with Soft tannins and an acidic cherry quality. Deep fruit once again that needs time to open up with a tight core of tart black berry. Very nice, though I will wait to see what develops. With time plum and some spice comes to the front of the nose. While the tannins integrate a bit more and I begin to pick up more of a ripe blackberry. I really like this and it's similar in many ways to its bigger brother which I've had in the past. c5a12t15o7=89+

This was a real pleasure for $7! Blackberry/cassis, maybe some licorice, but fruit was abounding, even some nice acid to stand up to some food. Had fruit across the palate - nothing thin about this wine. Great everyday wine for the price - definitely paid more for lesser juice.

Kottabos 87

Dark ruby with a hint of browning, this Spanish blend smells of black cherry and spice. On the palate, spicy plum and anise dominate. Not a bad wine, but very good for the $8 price!

A hidden gem! There are so many undiscovered wines in Spain...This is one of them. Masculine, rich on the palate and very chewy!

Quite suprising spanish wine. Dark, very airomatic with tobacco, oak, leather, and mocha. Mid palate was balanced nicely and it was showing youth. This can go for another 10 years.

Smoke and oak. Dark fruits smooth finish. This wine has mellowed out. Drinking well now. Has bacbone and structure for the price. Good value

TMac 94

Tasted at our wine tasting. Nose was deep yet not overwhelming. Had strong scents of chocolate/mocha, blueberrys, and fresh cut flowers (?). Taste was a blast of blueberry liqueur, more chocolate, and stone flavors similar to a riesling. The tannins I don't think had fully integrated and I got the impression this might need several more years before it really struts its stuff.
