The Stork Dropped This One Off

Black ruby with bright purple edges.  Heavy tartarates visible.  Big typical Spanish funk and fruit-forward-ness.  Dark cherry lurking and considerable nice oak.  Settles down nicely in the glass to more ripe fruit and walnut-acidity.  Acids take over the early- and middle-mouth, drying everything out into the finish but with round, nice fruit keeping pace throughout.  I am not the hugest fan of Spanish wines, but this is a nice little bottle–well crafted and balanced, perfect for mealtime.  5 or 6 dollars at Grocery Outlet, so definitely the QPR is up there.  Not a whole lot going on, but quite enjoyable through-and-through.  13-5  ♦
