Is this the best bargain in the shop right now? Could be. Insane amounts of black fruits, chocolate, and heft. It's got a bit of that Southern Rhone smokiness too and would just rock socks with any kind of BBQ smothered in sauce.
This hails from Spain in a region just south east of Rioja (Calatayud), where the weather is a bit warmer, something this wine shows with pride. Anyone who likes full-bodied, juicy wines and also likes spending less than fourteen bucks to get it, are going to be ecstatic!
You'd spend around $40 for a WA wine to taste like this!!!
