I spend a vast majority of time in my wine world finding wines that I believe are great value for money and deliver an enjoyable experience that works from the moment we see the wine in bottle, then seeing it in the glass before tasting it and finally letting it slip down our throats to the never never.
I'm actually annoyed by this wine because it is maybe too good and I wish I had thought of, designed, made and marketed this wine.
I love the simplicity and the sexiness of the series and think that the simplicity of this bottle of number 6 just begs us to try the wine. The true genius is in the blend that is 70% Tempranillo with 30% Merlot. The Merlot adds weight and a chocolatey quality while the Tempranillo still shines through with that classic liquorice and sour cherry flavour.
I tried this at a tasting recently and immediately listed it in our Spanish Tapas restaurant because it is indeed a 'bullet and guns' wine just perfect with meats but supple enough to enjoy alone also.
Sour Cherry, cedar and forest fruits dominate the nose with more of the same fruit with a luscious chocolate and delicate liquorice on the palate.
