Vinos De Arganza-La Mano-Mencia-Spain-2006-$12.00-I found this wine totally undrinkable,

usually if I dislike a wine I will use it for cooking..this one was emptied into the sink.  The label said

intense cherry red color..which I did agreed with, label said spice and red fruit aromas..which really

meant it had a awful nose and taste was even worse..maybe bottle was corked..how this got a

high rating from Parker beats me.  Maybe the hand on the label was really there as a sign to stay

away from this wine.   RP-90  CR-2  Not sure what it’s good with, maybe my sink knows.
