This had been one of the best Spanish wines I've tasted to date. I'm just getting out there in trying wines other than French or Californian / this one was recommended w/ 90 pts. I concurr. it's very Jammy up front when you smell it - w/ hints of vanilla. Same when you first taste. it was better after aeration & sitting in the glass for 10-15 mins. Smooth finish & tannins. Paired excellent w/ grilled chicken & BBQ side dish. GREAT choice for Spanish, red, table wine & priced very well for having any day of the week!
if you can find it buy it
