Reserva de la Tierra-Vega Escal-Priorat-Carignan-Grenache-Shiraz-Spain-2005-$12.99-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark almost black ruby in color.  Blackberry, blueberry, jammy, smooth with chocolate and vanilla on backend, was a $30 wine, now a great bargain.    I have had this wine a few times over the past year with similar results, the last bottle I thought it had peaked, changed my mind with this bottle, it still has it’s legs.           RP-90          WE-88         CR-4-4.5            Good with steak, burgers, pasta.
