A lovely Spanish red. Nothing to write home about, but well worth its price. I had a bunch of girlfriends over and we drank it with homemade, funky sushi (sushi with Hebrew National franks, mustard, relish, other rolls with goat cheese, caramelized onions, and roasted sweet potatoes, etc...) The wine rounded out the food nicely.

This seemed like a no-brainer from the reviews touting black pepper and licorice but it is way too tinny and dry for me. Very metallic, flat, and hard to taste the fruit. I noticed that a second bottle tasted smoother and better, so maybe it's a consistency issue.
