Alba Liza 2004 (Wine Review) (PB)
This Spanish red is made from 65% Tempranillo and 35% Garnacha. It is purple on the pour being a very young wine indeed. The bouquet and nose are essentially non-existent at first yet in the mouth there is flavor that is fresh, simple and fruity yet shallow.
After just a few minutes of breathing though, the bouquet opens up a bit and releases some nice berry aromas with a corresponding cherry/berry flavors in the mouth with a mouth watering juiciness. It has a remarkable balance and at $8 this is a value wine! Raise a glass tonight!
