A bit rubbery and smoky on the nose, with some hardness. Airing reveals raspberry and vanilla aromas, while the palate carries some jolt due to sizable acids. Tastes like a burst of red plum and pie cherry, while the finish is tannic, long and full of leftover red fruit. More than respectable for La Mancha Syrah. Imported by North American Beverage Group.
