This Spanish red is an amazing value at about $11.This palate pleaser is a blend of 65% Tempranillo and 35% Garnacha (Grenache). The wine is aged in stainless steel which lends it a nice round taste. The vines average 30 years old. The Alba region is located 40 miles south of Madrid.
The Alba Liza accompanied a meal of potato soup, bread and salad. This medium bodied red hit just the right note. We aerated it with our Vinturi and the light fruits flavors of black cherry and a touch of tartness shone through
This wine is recommended. It is a great value and the flavor compares very favorably with much more expensive wines.
