Spanish Red Wines

Spanish Wines, (Red wines) affordable, mysterious, having a place to their type and taste (Terroir), and often with transcendent richness.
Not being an authority doesn't mean I haven't an opinion, and New Hampshire has a somewhat limited number of Spanish wines, so tasting them and commenting on them should be easy, right? Not so fast; wine is a serious "business"; however we wine lovers, or those interested in a special gift at this time of the year, we're all about the fun, value, and the utility of wine. So as I taste them, I note them, and if my list (a work in progress, mostly to assist Smart phone users) is of any help to my New Hampshire family and friends, then that's great.
