Celler Piñol Terra Alta Ludovicus 2009 Red Wine (40% Garnacha, 15% Tempranillo, 15% Cariñena, 20% Syrah and 10% Merlot), $9.00-$12.50, 89 points, is dark ruby red in color.
Give this wine a "minute" to breathe, and out comes a beautiful blackberry, smoky oak, and cooking spice aroma.
The body is medium plus, is smooth on mild acidity and tame tannin, carrying plentiful flavors of plum, licorice, juicy boysenberry, tart cherry, and espresso. The palate continues the finish with just a hint of spice.
It is about time I served-up a Spanish Red Wine, and at $9.00, wow! I'm not sure if this one is still available, but if you're looking for a great Red Wine as a "table wine", then grab this one.
Bought at the Londonderry Hannaford's super market.
