This medium bodied wine has integrated notes of black berries, cedar and dark chocolate. Wine was acidic and had dusty tannins (decant for 30 min or longer) and short to medium, frankly uneventful finish. Another thing I did not appreciate and I must mention is the fake blue plastic cork. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 86.5 pts - NOT a recommended buy. Considering the other reviews, I am a bit concerned whether the bottle we had was somehow off even though it was not spoiled - oh well, will not try again. Tasted in Sept/10 during Spanish wine tasting - the second least popular wine in the line up.
