A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: The winemakers (enólogos) at this producer like Alicante Bouschet, which is 50% of this blend. This young wine shows density and rich concentration, with tannins that give power. It needs time to soften, so wait until 2024. Cellar Selection. Score - 93 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 1, 2021) Price $ 24.95
