It's only wine but I like it

A wine of superior complexity and length. Quite an interesting mix of flavours, a mix of dark berries and red fruits, with a healthy dose of herbs and spice (not wood, though which is well in the background). Fresh and drinking well now. As one would expect from Palacios, very well made. Tasted Jan 2016.
