2 Copas 2011 wine review by (PB)
This Spanish blend, from LaMancha D.O.C., is comprised of Syrah and Tempranillo. It begins with a solid garnet presentation and nice notes of cinnamon, mixed sweet spice and red cherry/berry fruit.
Palate--Warm berry flavors on a supple foundation of plush tannins with deep berry and mixed spice.
This is a tasty wine that goes down real easy; very fruity and well made in a popular style.
At a price point of just above $10 this is a good pick for non-snobby, neuvo red wine drinkers who say they "don't like red wine." This could push them the other way!
A nice pizza wine; pasta wine; lighter red or white meat with a not too strong sauce so raise a glass of well made, tasty easy to drink fruity reds!
