    August 29, 2014 - tawny/ruby, light/medium body, red licorice aroma after gas blow-off, lotta acid, good tannin, nice, but tart finish, better after an hour, suggest decanting for 1-2 hours; interesting wine, good value @ $9

    March 15, 2014 - Cherry and blue berry nose with some anise and pepper. Blackberry and smokey tobacco on the pallet, with mild tannins. An interesting bottle, not tasted one like this before, but like it. Would buy this again and enjoy with a good cigar!

    February 27, 2014 - Decanted for an hour. Had with steak. New world. Too ripe and alcohol way too strong. Just so much heat. I love Spain but this could have been from anywhere. It does have a beautiful floral and fruity nose I'll give u that, but not my cup of tea. Too bad cuz the qpr could have been good.

    October 23, 2013 - PnP through Nuance Wine Finer. Dark dark red color. On the nose, blackberries, a little spice, a little oak, a little heat. On the palate, nice balance of dark berries, spice, a little tobacco and some earthiness. Mild tannins. Medium finish. Nice hedonistic daily drinker. 89 pts. Aloha!
