If you’re remotely interested in value wines, this one probably needs no introduction. The 2011 got crazy press, and now seems to fly off the shelf as soon as it’s restocked. At $7 to $9 a bottle, it’s easy to taste why.
I’m not sure I’d go in for a case of this stuff, because I feel like you might tire of it after a bit. But again, for $7, it’s an all-time great red wine value.
It tastes like raspberry jam and dirt. It’s big and rich and sweet, but not cloying. No one wouldn’t like this.
I think that what these big cheap Spanish wines get right that big cheap Australian wines fail at is modest to no oak and decent acidity.
It goes in the Cheap Wine Hall of Fame.
