Sandogal No. 3 Roble DO La Mancha Tempranillo And Petit Verdot, $7.29-$13.99, 89 points, poured a spectrum of purple/reds, more red at the broad clear wine ring and leggy glass wall.
Aromatic strawberry, blueberry, and soft floral notes were quite good.
Medium to medium-plus body was supported by an underlayment of tannin and mouthwatering acidity.
Flavors of strawberry, blueberry, and plum were accented with mango and citrus (unusual for a red wine).
Finished well on the trailing palate, warm spices, tobacco, and a restrained 13% alcohol.
Varietals were 75% Tempranillo and 25% Petit Verdot.
If the duck interests you, it's referenced on the label Netta-Rufina (Red-crested Pochard).
Paired perfectly with my rare spice-rubbed Angus strip steak.
