May 28, 2013 - Salmon fishers' supper. This is a thoroughly pleasant quaffing wine. Not a vin de garde. Plenty of fruit on nose and palate. Just enough tannin Clear bright colour

April 10, 2013 - Faint nose of dark red Tempranillo fruits. Colour towards the brick colour: Good zing of acid on the front,with a medium heavy palate althought he fruits aren't as vibrant as they will ahve been when it was younger. Soft hints of tannins on the end. Probably drink up time, but still pretty decent.
For six quid on offer not a bad deal at all. not going to turn your world upside down but it's a good smooth drink with good zippy acidty and some fruit. A contender when on offer. No bad end notes or nasty surprises.
EDIT: Day 2: still about the same. More tannins, but still integrated and soft, but the acidity and tannins last longer. Length has improved at the end of the palate: some drying softtannins and nice acidity. It's a little sort of a "cloudy dark red fruits" flavour, but still very decent.
Not a patch on the Campo Viejo Reserva on day 2.

December 19, 2012 - Not bad. Very smooth. Good amount of spicy oak. Fair amount of racy acidity. Nice quoffing, cheap, mid week wine.
