2005 Aragonesas Mosen Cleto Crianza

This wine from Spain's Campo de Borja region is composed of 75% Garnacha and 25% Tempranillo. I have tasted this wine on several occasions and have had similar tasting notes each time. This is a very soft and delicate wine with aromas of strawberry, fresh cut grass, wet pavement, and a touch of soil. On the palate the wine shows notes of soft cherry, hints of spice, and a touch of earthiness. The wine is very soft and smooth on the entry and mid-palate but finishes with some firm tannin and hints of unsweetened cacao powder. The wine is very simple but drinks quite well for the price. The sand-blasted bottle is pretty unique and might be a good conversation piece too! 85+ points
