"The 2005 Ercavio Roble is a remarkable value. Produced from 100% Cencibel (Tempranillo), this is a custom cuvee selected by importer Eric Solomon, and was aged for 5 months in French and American oak. Purple colored, with fragrant spice box, tobacco, blueberry, and blackberry aromas, this full-bodied effort has gobs of ripe fruit, a firm structure, and a 40-second finish, not bad value for a sawbuck. Although this well-made wine will surely evolve for 2-3 years, who will have the patience? This is one to purchase by the case."
Yes, it's inexpensive. No, I still wouldn't buy it again. I had it last week and can't remember a thing about it besides a feeling of disappointment.
I just opened this bottle today and felt suspicious of the odor. When the first sip didn't go so well, I tried decanting for nearly an hour. It didn't improve a bit. I couldn't drink it, as the wine had an acrid, rotten smell and only tasted of alcohol with a bit of licorice.
