Stunningly deep dark ruby to purple. Aromas of blackberry and pepper. Pepper moves from the nose to the palate. Big ripe fruit like dark cerry. It is a bit dusty on the finish. Finer tannins but loads of them. Open it early and let is mellow.

This inexpensive Spanish red made from Monastrell, Garancha, and Tinto grapes had some very unusual characteristics. The aroma of this wine assailed me with big, sweet cherry, anise, sweet melon, banana, and bubblegum notes. The nose, in fact, resembled the smell you get when opening a box of chocolate covered cherries. Its flavor also really reminded me of chocolate covered cherries, but also of cherry cough syrup, and too much oak. Despite the sweet smells, the wine was surprisingly tart, with medium, dry tannins. The finish was extremely long, and the wine stayed well on the counter for a few days; it was best on the second day, without having gassed the wine. I can't decided if this wine was amazing for the price, or too forward on the oak and fruit for me to really enjoy. Heady, I think, is the appropriate adjective for this wine; it would be best, perhaps, for a romantic evening accompanied by Spanish food and Spanish music...

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
