Marco Real 2005

  • Area: Spain, Navarra
  • Grape: Tempranillo
  • Alcohol: 14%

Description: Very oak nose with notes of toast and spice. Mellow and plummy attack. This earthy wine has gusto in the mouth and sticks to the ribs. Flavors of spice, toast, prune, red and black currents are soft and quite dry. Very Spain, very hearty, very drinkable and a very good deal. Smooths out in the decanter.

Price: $8

Food: A versatile food wine that should go nicely with a wide range of foods from pizza to duck.
