A very nice easy drinking straight-ahead Spanish blend that is a steal below $20. This wine is a blend of 65% Monastrell (Mouvedre), 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Tintorera Garnacha (a blending grape, otherwise known as Alicante Bouschet). Low-medium acidity, which makes it a bit flabby but what can you expect at this price point? Initially on the nose, this smells spicy, just like a Mouvedre should, hints of cinnamon also in the bouque. There's an array of smoky fruit ranging from cherry to raspberry, and I think a bit of blackberry character as well.This is far more interesting than your typical fruit bomb, and at the right price.

Dark crimson color, floral on the nose, extremely rich and full bodied - flavors of preserved black cherry, balsamic and a smokiness and hints of mocha that are characteristic of Spanish wine. Paired very well with Chinese stir-fry as it cut through the flavors. Very smooth, so silky and easy to drink with tannins that are barely hanging around. Impressive for the price. Was doing just fine a day later.

Blown away by the value proposition. Solid mid-90s red wine at under $20??? Wow! Fleshy, round dark fruit liqueur flavors caress the palate. This is a rich wine, that I would think in 5yrs would be even better, integrating the rich dark fruits with myriad spices and mineral notes. Sexy, silky mouthfeel. Bravo!

A popular favorite amongst the two or three value wines we put out at our Super Bowl gathering. Smoky fruits and pie spices with a nice smooth finish. Very nice for the price.

This deep purple Spanish blend of Monestrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Tintorera presented an luscious nose of blackberry, blueberry, milk chocolate, and perhaps a hint of violets. Still possessing tannic power enough for further cellaring, its flavor is well balanced between black fruit, dried herbs, a lively acidity, and a long finish. A fantastic bargain with enough complexity to enjoy on its own and enough depth to enjoy with Mediterranean dishes.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
