Celler del Roure Les Alcusses 2006
Other Red Blends from Spain
It is a blend of 40% Tempranillo, 30% Monastrell, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Mando. The wine is aged for 6 months in French oak before bottling. It is dark ruby in color displaying aromas of blueberries and black cherries. In the palate it is broad, chunky, flavorful and savory. It also has lovely dusty tannins and a medium to long finish.
International Wine Cellar - "Inky ruby. Fresh raspberry and cherry on the nose, with suave baking spice and pungent floral qualities adding nuance. Tangy and precise, offering fresh red fruit and mineral flavors and a silky texture. There's an enticing pinot-like freshness to this wine. Clean and focused on the very persistent finish. Very sexy wine. "

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
