Terra Unica Reserva 2002 wine review by (PB)

This Spanish bargain is 70% Tempranillo; 30% Monastrell with a slightly aged reddish hue. Pronounced tart cherry and sweet dark fruit with a slight hint of spices mark this value's bouquet.

Palate--Juicy, slightly sweet with smooth mature tannins and integrated fruit and tart cherry highlights. It is lighter in body with fleeting flavors.

We have reviewed earlier vintages of this wine with equally good results. the blend then was slightly different with a 50/50 blend of the varietals. For $7--yes $7--you should raise a glass! (Label shown is for the 2000 but is the same)

bought this wine at an A & P and it drinks smoothly and is quite dry and has a mature fruitiness. Good bargain and would buy again
