Perhaps others didn't let it decant enough or they got a bad bottle. But for $14 a bottle (what I paid on Wine.com the first time), I thought this was a very good wine. I am partial to the Rioja region but I have had worse wines that cost more from there. I bought some more of this one.
Vibrant cherry colored. Bright red cherries and strawberries on the nose, rose hips, some spice rub. A vibrant and juicy red-fruit-driven wine (cranberries, strawberries, cherries), but the wine also has some minerality and freshness. Notes of clay soil, dried leaves and chestnut add complexity. A fun and food-friendly wine that’s vibrant and easy to drink. Half Garnacha, half Tempranillo, this is a young wine aged only for six months in barrel.
