A terrific buy at $17.99.
A bit lighter weight than a typical Ribera Reserva, but good secondary tar, herb, leather, dirt stuff going on. Not much fruit to it at all, and this was maybe a tiny bit past its prime, but still very, very nice and terrific for the money.
I made a potato and kidney bean dish with smoky anchos, dried tomatoes, onions and sage. Went very well together and with Woody Allen's masterpiece, Manhattan.
