Finca Antigua Crianza 2001 Wine Review (NW)

Lots of layers on the nose: buttered popcorn, toasty oak, vanilla, and some distant cherry
Watery texture, not very plush
Cherry and spice on the palate and finish

I've been sampling a fair number of bargain Spanish wines lately. This one has a lot of flavors and interesting layers, but it's a little disjointed. Party due to the watery texture, the wine seems to have an abundant nose but a weak core.

I paid $13 for this bottle at an excellent wine store. The Spanish section is huge and there are better bargains to be found, I'm sure. Raise a glass of Spanish wine!
