Vega Real Crianza 2005

I had seen this in Dunnes on a number of occasions but hadn't taken the plunge as €17 is a lot to drop on an unknown wine in a supermarket. However Tomás Clancy had it as his "To Buy" pick two weeks ago in the Sunday Business Post  so I took a punt on it.  It makes a nice change from all those Oaky Rioja monsters.

Name: Vega Real Crianza
Year: 2005
Price: €16-95
Notes: This was a big wine in every respect. An inky purple in the glass, this wine had some lovely dark fruits but also had a fine structure and long lingering finish. I'd say its just about on the money value-wise.                                       
Rating: 7/10
