Wine Critic Reviews:

...powerful, ripe and concentrated blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 30% Monastrell aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 23 months. It's bottled with 16% alcohol, not a shy wine but not one that shows heat, as it keeps the balance in an XL way. It feels concentrated, powerful and young, but the oak is surprisingly more integrated than in the 2014... it has a marked style, but for those who like this profile, this could very well be the finest vintage of El Nido to date...

Region Spain: Spain is home to some absolutely masterfully crafted wines. Their culture gets romanticized in many works of prose, and it's easy to see where the appeal lies. The wines serve as an extension of that culture and stand among the tallest titans in the world. With powerhouse varietals like Airen, Tempranillo and Grenache brought to their full potential, these bottles hold a unique appeal without sacrificing what makes wine approachable and popular. Imagine an inspirational guitar performance. The artist's fingers are darting around accurately, and it's hard to keep track of all his hand movements. All you know is that he is making the strings dance vivaciously and produce a veritable symphony of intricately woven notes, each note adding something unique and pleasant to the overall composition. That's what sampling a Spanish wine is like. The wines are fresh, possessing an intense yet elegant fruitiness to them that feels like you're enjoying a healthy bowl of fruit salad on the side. Whatever your preference may be, Spanish wines are an essential, unmissable part of wine culture. You'd be doing yourself a disservice if you skipped out on these amazing drinks, which is why we've arranged a selection of only the finest wines Spain has to offer.
Type of Wine Spain Red: Spanish wines shouldn't be overlooked under any circumstances, as there are plenty of extraordinary wines coming from this country. There are also lots of grape varietals grown all over Spain. Some of the most gorgeous red varieties are the early-harvested Tempranillo, raspberry-flavored Garnacha, Bobal, Monastrell, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot.
Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
