Rivola 2005 Sardon de Duero Abadia Retuerta

Inky dark near-opaque purple/red.

Cedar smell, a pencil box inside a hope chest. Can't name anything else in there.

Tannins and oak predominate. There's dark stone fruit under there, but it's well-hidden. I fear splinters.

The next day no noticeable improvement.

$15.49 for Spanish red wine the way I remember it. I didn't use to like Spanish wine. I wouldn't buy it again. It'd be interesting to know if it'll improve with time, but not on my own dime.

Enjoy your postings. We found this one pretty much the same exact way you noted it: ordinary but not offensive. Happy drinking!
