Alceno 50 Spanish Red Blend 2012

Here’s another great value Spanish bottle that is only $9.99.  This one is a bit different of a blend than many of the other high value Spanish wines.

This wine is 85% Syrah and 15% Monastrell.  If you like Syrah with some character, this is the wine for you.  The Monastrell brings a little tannic bite to the finish, kind of like the difference between mild and sharp cheddar.  In small doses like this the grape can really take a good wine to the next level, and that’s exactly what I think happens here.

Lots of herbal scents on the nose with spice; then juicy flavors of blueberry, blackberry surrounded by more herbal notes; leads into a deep long finish that is really remarkable for a wine priced this low.  Tastes like blueberry pie with bite.  A beautiful wine.
