Marqués Del Costal 2008 - Case of 6
We really enjoyed this wine on valentines day. The depth of the wine was good. We had it to accompany duck and the combination was great. We would certainly buy again.

Avoid if you like fruity fresh reds
Dark reddish black in colour. The nose offers pencil shavings and raw rhubarb with a hint of mint and curry spice. Again rhubarb comes through on the palette and lingers on the long dry finish. Heavy tannins are present with lack of fruit and complexity. A Cabernet-Merlot blend in its crudest form. Avoid if you like fruity fresh wines, or if you are not sure about reds. Difficult food matching, most disappointing and cannot recommend. M & S description appears innacurate, perhaps its for a different vintage.
