WINE: Sangre de Toro 2006

TYPE: Red

GRAPE(S): Greanach, Carignan

REGION: Catalunya

PRICE: 9.99

VENDOR: Steve’s

NOTES: Deep ruby colour with a hint of ochre. Rich complex Mediterranean aromas with exuberant notes of spices and blackberries. Velvety tannins are noted on the palate with elegant flavours of liquorice and small dark forest fruits (blueberries and blackcurrants). A light red, with flavors of raspberry, coffee and spice. Straightforward, with a simple finish. Drink now.

COMMENTS: A fine and completely reliable wine.  But LB was disappointed to have something so common in our mix.
