Robust. But in an aggressive, little bit pushy fashion, and as if out of balance. Testy Tempranillo. Wildly, over-the-top floral nose. It reminded us of Florient, the room freshener back in the aerosol spray heydays (in other words, floral and not in a good way). Sharp, earthy, pungent. And spicy (smoky Spanish paprika anyone?).
It has great reviews online and seems to be well liked and based on that I bought three bottles but I will be gifting them over the holiday. Just not our cup of tea.
Price: Under $20 at Everything Wine.
