    June 11, 2010 - Spain scores again with the QPR. Excellent wine for the $14 price point. Expressive nose of sour cherries, dried cranberries and raspberries, dried herbs, stewed meat and asian spices. Attacks the palate with a medium-light body but full flavors or more dried red fruit and figs, game, and cranberry sauce. Grenache makes its presence known with a spicy mid-palate and a high octane finish. Great complexity for a wine well under $20, outstanding value. Fell a little flat on the finish with lower than average tannins, moderate acidity and high alcohol. Other than the disjointed finish, I love this wine. It's a must for anyone looking for quality on a budget.
