From the wilds of Navarra. I guess.
Raspberry bomb. Thwack. Think Don Martin Mad Magazine spladap, shtoink, bukkida bakkida, ba-bomb. Raspberry bomb. Headstrong to the point of unpleasant.
OK: I’m sure this is a lovely wine, much loved by many. Old vines. Even-handed medium body. Soupcon of oak. Little shake of pepper on the palate. Quite sweet (maybe a little too sweet). But omigosh is it not our cup of tea; it’s headstrong fruit like a medicinal ruse, very linear, not much to rave about other than the price.
Price: An extremely reasonable $20 at Everything Wine.
Market Liquidity: Pwang, splitch, dadunk.
