Dark, balsamic aromas blend with hints of wood, bramble and briar to give this wine rusticity, while the palate is slick and medium in weight, with black-fruit and tea-like flavors. It’s a little narrow on the finish, but there’s also a creamy, oak-driven vanilla flavor that softens things up. A good wine that’s 70% Tempranillo and 30% Garnacha.
Pungent and sweaty smelling, and even though it’s 50% Verdejo and 50% Viura, it’s the Verdejo that stands out. Fresh and flashy in the mouth, with lively lime, gooseberry and green apple flavors. And the finish is zesty and wet, with plenty of acidity and spritz. Imported by Grapes of Spain. Best Buy.
The nose shows buttered popcorn, toast and baked apple, while the palate is tangy and tastes of tart white fruits, green apple and toast. Has good flow and a cleansing feel to it. Not bad for an oaky blend of Viura and Chardonnay.
This is fairly mulchy on the nose, with an earthy prune aroma. It feels grabby and lean, with cranberry fruit flavor, bitterness and an herb accents. The finish stays murky, tart and mildly green.
Almond candy and lacquer aromas create a corny scent on the nose. This wine feels flabby and soggy, with buttery oak and little to no fruit flavor. Finishes woody, with vanilla and spice. A blend of 60% Viura and 40% Chardonnay.
