This Spanish blend is made from Monastrell, Garnacha and Tintorera primarily. It is dark purple/garnet with aromas of big ripe dark fruit–blackberries galore, plum, cigar box, delightful.

Palate–Absolutely elegant tannins, sweet presentation, voluptuous presence with big ripe dark fruit that is mouth filling, bread, minerals and a texture that is simply rich! Wowwwww! It finishes with a hold that makes you want more. (This has all the finger prints of Michel Rolland’s consultative style. I shall research it and see if I can find out if I am right!) BING! The senior tasteman of the WCB is right on the money! You can trust the WCB! Yeah BAYBAY!!!

I am having this with a nice grilled steak and it should be wonderful! (It was!)
This a big wine so pair it with big foods. This is so good though, by itself is just fine too.

This was a $13 wine and it is a BARGAIN.

Now all I have to do is remember where I bought it so I can raise a bunch of glasses of this bad boy!

    I believe the second grape is Alicante Bouschet, known in SE Spain as Garnacha Tintorera.

    Nice wine, though I put out $17. Very enjoyable, I’ll have to try it with steak.
