The unheralded Tarragona D.O. delivers a basic winner in this varietal Tempranillo. It comes out of the gate well, with deep cherry, kirsch and coffee aromas. The palate falls off a touch from the promise of the bouquet, but overall the wine is generous and fruity and sincere. More balanced and complex than one might expect from a Catalonian value-priced red.
Light on the nose, with nondistinct but fairly fresh fruit aromas. The palate is tangy and shows a combo of red apple and citrus flavors. Finishes with pink grapefruit pith and cleansing acids.
