Finca Albret Navarra French Oak Crianza 2007 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Spicy blackberry on the nose

Full bodied and dense on the palate

Finish packed with dark berries, currants, and oak highlights, along with being a bit resinous

Summary:

For $15, this is a beautifully composed wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Tempranillo in the excited Navarra region of Spain. While showing obvious oak and even broadcasting the oak finish on the label, the wine has depth and density that comes together nicely. Enjoy with braised meat or lamb with rice. Raise a glass!
