2009 Picante Espana “Gran Mesata” Tempranillo Shiraz. Vino Tinto. Spain. 14%
Unbelievably good value. What you would take to a BBQ and drink with pride. The Tempranillo gives this a nice structure and the Shiraz provides the body and sweetness.
Smokey bacon and red fruits. Hints of clove and star anise. Moderate length. At this price, a bargain. Good honest drinking.
Purchased at Swanbourne Cellars for approx $15
