Fans of Merlot and Shiraz should get on this yummy Spanish red. Quite rich â€˜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 Spainâ€™s big red region â€“ something worth knowing if thatâ€™s your thing. Gotta love the â€˜long standing finishâ€™ description on the back label.
