Wine Tasting: Palacio del Conde Gran Reserva 2005

This wine hits your tongue like a needle. A sharp, sour, juicy grape flavor. The flavor is strong enough to power through heavily seasoned steak - and just about any dish you could throw at the wine. Adjectives like "needle" "knife" and "sharp" aren't often used to describe fine wine, but that's the best way I can describe the strong fruity flavors of this Spanish Tempranillo-based wine.

Once the strong, fruity flavors work through the wine is very soft on the tongue. If you prefer your wines with more oak notes this is not the wine for you. Of late I've been preferring wines with bold fruity flavors, so this is really up my alley.

It's not quite perfect but almost....
