A strong, blunt and fairly appealing wine with cola/root beer aromas along with tobacco and raisin on the nose. The palate is driving and lively, with a mix of berry, coffee and resiny flavors sharing center stage. It's a tad rough and unfamiliar, but that's Utiel-Requena boiled down to its essence.
