This is an excellent wine all around. Extremely ripe flavours of cherry and strawberry dominate. The tannins are soft making the wine very easy to drink. This is a go to everyday wine as it can be a sipper or paired with a variety of dishes. The best you can do at the price point without question. Tasted daily from 2011 - present.

This is a great wine at an amazing price point. It goes well with food and on its own. I always amaze my guests with this bottle and keep a full stock in my basement!

Amazing value- deep red/ to purple colour
-the smell is not fabulous- infact i even dislike the aroma.
But on taste you can really get the chocolate and the cassis, licorice
-this is a warm-by the fire wine- can definitely be standalone but i would like to enjoy this with charred meats or even a heavy chocolate dessert
-the taste is unexpected- very aromatic in a bad way but the taste is great
-similr tot he taste- not a great starting taste but a great finish
-medium to full, medium tannins
-very dry round finish- great finish,
-I would DEFINITELY repurchase as both a weekday and weekend wi
The best version of this wine that I have tasted in several years. A juicy grenache that was served on a very hot day. I pull raspberries with a hint of earth of the nose, ripe, plump cherries on the palate, a clean fruity mouth-feel with a hint of black licorice. Served slightly chilled to compensate for steamy temperatures of the day it was served.
A nice fruit forward easy drinking casual sipper with aromas of plum and hints of chocolate. Juicy to taste; refreshingly light with a pronounced blueberry sweetness and the slightest vegetal notes that seem to complete the experience nicely. Tasted Jan 2012.

Jammy on the nose and it carries through to the palate. Some prunes.chocolate and mintiness fill out the nose on this medium-bodied wine. Pretty simplistic in the end though with not much to offer beyond the initial fruit rush.
While I enjoyed this wine, I had recently drank both the Cannonau Di Sardegna Riserva, and the Cannonau is Sardinia, Italy's local name for Grenache. I perferred both of these to this Spanish take.

Not bad for the price. It seems to have a vanilla flavour I'm not a fan of. Maybe that is what other call mint.
Too young. Not drinkable except for a party you don't care about. A table wine priced as a table wine.
