Decanted in anticipation of homemade Mexican food supper..... VERY fruity, dunno 'bout this one. 13% alc/vol and $12.09 at Sam's Club (same wine was less than 6 bucks a very few years ago). More later.

Very Beaujolais-like, even in its nose and finish. Nice enough, but lacking the grip I expected. Would probably make a nice party wine, in which there's a need to please a broad spectrum of tastes. Would buy again for that purpose, but not for home consumption.

I've not had it at the Crianza level but their reserva and gran reserva's which not great, are good representatives of the breed. They are also a step up in price though with the reserva around $24.
