Don Mendo Carinena (NV) wine review by (PB)

This was another close out which should have been closed out. It is 50% Garnacha (I'm big Garnacha fan--also called Grenache) and 50% Tempranillo.

Color has some heft with a ruby rim and a bouquet of black cherry and overly ripe plum or raisin notes. Palate is really thin though, tannic and just kind of ucky. Don't raise a glass of this--even at $6!

I agree as of JAN 2008. Although I love wines from Spain, there is something wrong with this one. Stay Away
