Roasted and scratchy on the nose, with a baked set of berry aromas. The palate maintains that scratchiness, while the flavors are tart and rubbery, with elements of stewed fruit and herbs. Not very developed or exciting.
Reduced and green on the nose, with an overriding aroma of beet juice. Thick and almost cloying, with a jammy, stewy, stemmy set of flavors that finish herbal and green. Has darkness and weight but little more; 50% Tempranillo and 50% Garnacha.
Damp, mealy aromas offer a touch of melon. The palate, however, is tart and metallic, with sour citrus flavors and a weird note of burnt popcorn on the finish. Acidity is all that’s keeping it afloat.
This smells raw and minty, with an artificial candy note. It feels lean, with a green, weedy flavor of red fruit. It shows heat and scour on the finish. This is a blend of equal parts Tempranillo and Garnacha.
