Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby colour with thick legs showing extraction signalling the "macho" style of this red wine. This full-bodied red has a fleshy nose of Bing cherries,plum, strawberry preserves, raspberry, red currant, vanilla, sweet spices. The palate is smooth with chocolate, toasted oak, licorice and nutmeg. Soft tannins and medium+ acidity. Length is long on an elegant finish. A Macho wine in touch with it's feminine side. Pair with seafood Paella, mushroom risotto, crudite plate. Enjoy over the next 3 years.
Tasted: January 2015
This Spanish red wine won a Gold Medal winner at the 2013 Mundus Vini International wine competition. Despite the marketing-driven concept in the name and label, it's decent juice for the money. - Community Wine Reviews
