From a historical winemaking region in Spain, if not all that well recognized in the United States, this is a great value wine that can satisfy most dry red wine lovers. Made from Spain's most noble grape Tempranillo, this wine has nice balance between fruit and cocoa. The nose is closed but the palate has layers of juniper berries, mocha, and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied wine with good acid/alcohol balance and finishes with medium tannins. A Spanish wine lover's dream!
