Community Tasting Notes

 Tasted by gabriella on 4/12/2007: Incredible dark rich maroon mimicked in its aroma showing dark cherry and blackberry on the nose with hints of black pepper, black wet dirt and rich dark chocolate. The theme here is dark! The mouth didn't fail to represent the exact same bold richness with round lush flavors of chocolate, black cherry and a slight peppery spice that could have easily passed for either black pepper or even a mild smoked chipotle. I felt as if I should sip this in a slinky red dress with high heels and a long elegant cigarette holder in an old 1920's jazz bar. Incredibly sexy and elegant. 4.0 (1672 views)
 Tasted by obiscoito on 4/10/2007: Nice rich color. The nose is pure chocolate and with time shows layered fruit(cassis, black cherry), followed by black pepper and earth. Really a great nose. Lush in the mouth, soft with a firm tannin that is un-obtrusive, and a medium acidity. Rich cherry, chocolate, earth, pepper, and light tobacco notes in the mouth. Elegant and very enjoyable. Really a wine I would buy again and again. 3.5/5 (1681 views)

Vinos de España - Wines of Spain (Instituto Español de Comercio Exterior) | Wikipedia

Spain is the third largest wine producing nation in the world, occupying the majority of the Iberian Peninsula with vast diversity in climate, culture, and of course, wine. From inky, dark reds of the [Priorat] to dry, white Finos from Andalusia, Spain can easily boast of elaborating a wide variety of notable styles. Within Spain there are currently 62 demarcated wine regions, of which a handful have gained international recognition: [Rioja], Priorat and [Ribera del Duero]. Yet these regions are only a small sample of the high quality wines Spain produces. Regions such as Cava, Penedes, Somontano, Galicia, Rueda and Jerez are only a few of the numerous regions worthy of exploration throughout Spain. Spain can also lay claim to having the most land under vine in the world, growing up to, by some accounts, 600 indigenous varietals of which Tempranillo is their most well known. Other popular varietals include [Garnacha], Bobal and Monastrell for reds and for whites; the infamous Palomino Fino grape which is used in the production of sherry wine, Pedro Ximenez in Montilla Morilles, Albarino used in the creation of the bright, effervescent wines of Galicia, and Verdejo in Rueda. - Source: - Catavino.net

Spain is not in the forefront of winemaking for its dessert wines, other than for its sweet wines from Sherry country including the highly revered Olorosos and Amontillados. But apart from Sherry Spain has a range of styles of dessert wines, ranging from the those made from the Pedro Ximenez grape primarily in Jerez and Montilla-Moriles) to luscious, red dessert wines made in the Mediterranean from the Garnacha (Grenache) grape. Some good Moscatels are made in Mallorca, Alicante and Navarre. The northwest corner of Spain, Galicia, with its bitter Atlantic climate, is even making dessert wines, called “Tostadillos” in the village of Ribadivia (similar to France’s “Vin de Paille”). The Canary Islands have made interesting dessert wines for centuries (they are mentioned by Shakespeare, for example) and in recent years the quality of winemaking has been improved and the Canary Islands wines are being better marketed now. The winemaking styles for “Vinos Dulces” are also diverse, from “Late Harvest” (Vendimia Tardía) to “Fortified Wines” (Fermentación Parcial). Based on in-spain.info.
