Great Wine Find

Was looking for a bottle to open last night and checked out a couple labels in my wine rack and finally decided on one that I’d seen a few times and had no idea about it.  WOW!  I don’t have a clue where or when I bought this.  It’s the Tarima Hill 2010 Red (from Spain).   On the label it said it received 93 points and I am in complete agreement with that!  Amazing.  Dark fruit, spicy, a bit of smoke and leather, a bit chewy.

One quick review:

“The opaque purple-colored 2010 Tarima Hill exhibits notes of chocolate fudge, pen ink, graphite, blueberries and blackberries. This full-bodied, 100% Monastrell should drink well for a decade or more.” 93 Points – The Wine Advocate

I have no idea what I paid for this (though I’m guessing mid teens).  Many of the reviews say this should NOT cost this little, but more like $30-$50.  I can’t agree more!  Need something to do this weekend?  Go on a wine hunt…
