Excellent buying.  89 Points Screwcap Drink : 2013 – 2015 . Campbell Mattinson.  www.winefront.com.au
..... The big news is that it's even better than Spain's top-selling red wine in this country. It's an authentic and structured grenache which sets a dynamic contrast between blackberry, plum and liquorice fruit, subtle herbal complexity and firm, fine rustic tannins. This is declassified Campo de Borja from north-eastern Spain, not classified, because that would only make it more expensive.  90 points.

Product Description

The vast, high and dry plains of Castilla la Mancha comprise over 50% of Spain’s vineyards. The ancient soils and high altitude ensures the richly flavoured fruit maintains structure and tannin. Vineyards planted on the slopes of mountain ranges in the north and north east add a degree of elegance to the wines.


Very expressive and perfumed with juicy red-berried fruit joined by red licorice and sweet smoky spice. The palate is medium bodied and vibrant with decadent layers of ripe cranberry and red berry fruit. Savoury spice and fresh acidity provide definition to the finish. A pure drinkers wine that offers a truly rewarding experience and incredible value. Drink now or cellar for up to five years.
