Dark, dense and nice on the nose, with aromas of dried cheese, blackberry and plum. Fresh, juicy and healthy in the mouth, with blackberry and plum flavors that run long and clean. Freshness and juicy clarity are this wine’s chief attributes.
For a $12 wine, this blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha is clean on the bouquet, with cherry and raspberry aromas leading the way. The feel is vibrant and bouncy, while flavors of red berry, plum and light oak set up a chocolaty finish with dry spice and mild buttery flavors.

Dark on the nose, with licorice notes and mildly roasted black fruit aromas. Ripe, properly sized and balanced, with lightly candied blackberry flavors leading to a smooth finish with a hint of coffee. For the price and origin, it’s right on.
Not complex but if you’re looking for size, red fruit flavors and balance, it has that. The nose shows compost and horse hide but for the most part it’s fruity and welcoming.

The quality of the 2009 vintage is reflected in this value-priced Toro that’s full and medicinal but also balanced and rewarding. Flavors of medicinal red-berry fruit are mixed with thicker, chocolaty notes, while the finish is bold, grabby and solid. A blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha.
The catchy label suggests Miró and the wine is more than satisfactory. In fact, the Tempranillo and Garnacha in the blend work well together, resulting in zesty cherry flavors that properly back up the sweet, mildly spicy bouquet. Fresh and a touch peppery. Imported by Cellar Door.
A little spice and cured meat (salami) get this young and easy red going. The blend is common for Navarra, and this is a jammy, mildly candied wine with light strawberry and plum flavors touched up by a dollop of sweetness. Slightly creamy on the palate and finish, but healthy as a whole.
