Fans of Merlot and Shiraz should get on this yummy Spanish red. Quite rich ‘n smooth, but still feels like a real wine. I liked the earthy, soulful feelings. Really grew on me once I got past the red velvet-style opening act. Heartwarming stuff now, but also sure to please in the BBQ season.
Ribera del Duero is Spain’s big red region – something worth knowing if that’s your thing. Gotta love the ‘long standing finish’ description on the back label.
