Donimio de Eguren Protocolo Red Wine 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Brilliant garnet-violet color
Somewhat thin nose of berries and cocoa is slow to open
Fruity palate
Herbal on the finish

For bargain Spanish reds, there are better wines. I think too much of an herbal note can ruin a wine if it doesn't show complexity in other ways. This is super-bargain priced, though, at just $6. Because of that, you may want to check it out and come to your own conclusions. I see it a lot, so it seems to be readily available in a variety of wine shops, liquor marts, and grocery stores. Raise a glass!
