Name: Bodegas Montecillo Crianza Rioja
Pinot Noir-ish in color, this Spanish wine has an almost pungent aroma that is similar to a good Shiraz. The label says cherry and spice and that about describes the aroma. The flavor is also slightly spicy and it has the character of a breath mint. It’s like the flavor wafts around your mouth but isn’t specific until you swallow it. Then you get the tannins and dark berry flavors on the finish. This is a very interesting wine for $9.
