The nose is light and airy, offering a simple set of aromas with just a modicum of red fruit. Cherry and red raspberry flavors lead into a tangy, low-voltage finish. There isn’t much to gripe about here, but in the same breath there isn’t much to compliment, either.
Simple and a bit jammy, with green aromas mixed with berry and bacon. Shows raspberry and strawberry flavors with a gritty, buttery streak. Thin and acidic at the end. Imported by Luneau USA Inc.
Cloudy red in color, with musky berry aromas. The palate shows some cherry and raspberry, while the feel is sort of rough. A classic country wine that isn’t about to rock anyone’s world.
Stewy and sweet on the nose, with clumsy black-fruit flavors. This shows all the rough and tumble characteristics of young Tempranillo: It’s hard as nails, with big, forceful tannins and awkward, gummy flavors.
A lot of funky, tart bramble and rhubarb must be fought through to get to any of the wine’s fresh red fruit. Which means the road to enjoyment is pocked with citric acid and screechy flavors. As a whole it does little to elevate the reputation of industrial Valdepeñas.
Immediately this wine plays soft and raisiny. The nose has a stout molasses component, and the palate is sweet and vanilla-infused. A sticky strawberry flavor is sweetened up by coconut and vanilla on the finish. Not well balanced. Imported by Quintessential Wines.
