    Love the ubexpected finds. For only $7 on sale @ Fresh & Easy (reg $10), this is spicy slightly tannic, some oak & vanilla. It's a 2007 tempranillo that is drinkable, full-bodied and smooth.

    A bit disappointing. 2007 Cab, so thought it would be fuller and more interesting. Light bodied & a little berrier, more like a pinot noir to me. Costco on sale $8. Wow, definitely decant! MUCH better today. Rich, spicy, delicious.
