Enjoyed Recanati Yonatan a cab shiraz blend found harmonious with a soft fruit feel. Also very much enjoyed Dakton shiraz'16 which is showing nice spice and a boldness at 15alc.H

Harry, hi! We've been opening a lot of Spanish wines lately for a tasting series in the other forum. I liked this:

Castaño Sierra Salinas 2012 “Mo” Alicante Monastrell ($10.99)
Dark garnet, with scarlet glints against the light. Simple but appealing, black plum aromas with an earthy back note reminiscent of “tree bark,” a description I often associate with Mourvèdre/Monastrell. Medium-bodied and crisply acidic, it adds a touch of raspberry on the palate, framed by gentle tannic astringency. It carries its 14% claimed alcohol well; I was surprised to see the alcohol level on the label after tasting. A blend of 30-year-old Monastrell (85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), and Garnacha Tintorera (5%), it gets a touch of wood from four months in barrels. Its simple, earthy fruit suggests a pairing with roast chicken, duck or even goose, or cheese-based entrees like macaroni and cheese or pasta Alfredo made with good, robust cheeses. I tested this hypothesis with a leftover Welsh Rabbit sandwich on sourdough from a local Irish pub and found it right on point.

This Shabbat- 2014 Lueria Terraces. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 15% syrah, 15% cabernet franc. This wine isn't for me. It has good acid, reasonably good fruit, but too much earthiness, which seems to me to be from the cabernet franc.
