Really interesting wine. I went into this with my mind wide open...but not expecting much.

A bit bardyardy/bretty on the nose at first but it blew off quickly. Strong savory nose of herbs and leather. Full bodied and packed with flavour: stewed berries, anise, quite smokey. Smooth, ripe tannin and good acidity, very well balanced. Left bank meets northern Rhone (in a rustic Spanish style!) is what came to mind. Long, flavour filled, finish.

Full of depth, complexity and real character (which is very rare at this price), not for everyone, but a steal if you like it.

Outstanding value.

Pleasantly surprised, spent 30 mins in the air and despite the colour change there was noticeable fruit and enough tannin to remain grippy

For my liking, this wine was too acidic with strong taste of prune. Tannins were subtle, but the wine needed to open for an hour before it got noticeably better. Body was light to medium and the finish was medium and rustic. My impression: DRINKABLE BUT WHY and should cost $10. Tasted Jan/10.
