Conde Galiana Reserva DO, 2002 (Catalunya)

Tasted 08.02.11 with Sara, Alavaro and Elisabete. 13%, ca. £7 UK Laithwaites. This was a rare foray for me into Spanish wine that is not from Rioja. This is a 'modern blend' of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon from small winemaker Joseph Gurrera Descarrega, from this giant Spanish region. Bright cherry red, good nose of berry fruits and boiled sweets, very dry and slightly unbalanced on the palate - probbaly needs to be drunk now. It's a reserva but a cheap one and maybe one that indicates that you need to pay more for this type of wine. From 2010, 14.5 / 20
