Andy gave me the tip on this wine, he is a Spaniard at heart and we definitely share the love of all things Spanish. Many a car share trip are spent discussing fabulous spanish holidays and he has actually just come back from a trip to Tenerife!
2007 El Bombero D'O Carninena
Intense dark dark purple in colour
Powerful dark fruit and spice on the nose. A full bodied and complex wine with another element not unlike that ink aroma from fountain pens when i was at school! Strong ripe berry fruit dominated by liquorice and spice on the palate with powdery tannins and the hint of a hot sensation from the alcohol.
