87? pts. Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Sep/Oct 2012
Opaque ruby. Super-ripe plum and dark berry aromas show a slightly stewed quality. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering syrupy blueberry and plum flavors and a touch of bitter licorice. Finishes slightly greasy and sweet, with a vague burning sensation. This jammy wine would be a great one to crack open after everybody was too hammered to notice its confectionery character, or to friends whose booze preferences run toward Frozen Mudslides and double B-52s. Rumor has it that some people are into this style.
Now hailing from Spain, this bitch is light-bodied, fruity and fun! The nose is juicy; the entry is dark fruits, with not too much development; the finish is smooth, slightly metallic. A great party wine that everyone is sure to enjoy!
