Alaia Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y Leon wine 2004 review by (PB)

I'm at (NW's) waiting on my MINI Cooper S to be serviced and we are watching the snow fall at a heavy rate--sigh...This wine is a Spanish blend of 50% Prieto Picudo--a grape I am unfamiliar with--45% Tempranillo and 5% Merlot. It has a unique bouquet of pronounced cloves, with some cocoa, celery and sweet fruit.

For around $10, if unique is what you seek, give this a try. It is an interesting quaff so raise a glass.

I adore this wine! This is the first wine (and the price is great) that I've gone out of my way to reccommend to people. I liked it so much I bought a case from my local store. I'm going back later to try and find more.
