A little burnt and chemical up front, and soon after the nose turns to lemon and shoe polish as the oak takes over. Flavors of raspberry, cherry skins and plums have a true but hollow flavor, and for the most part this wine wears its personality on its sleeve. Which means it's good, for Valdepeñas but there aren't any hidden nuances.
