Nose

Fresh and expressive, this red wine from Somontano shows prominent notes of red berries and liquor-infused fruit. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Grenache and Syrah also insinuates vanilla, clove and cardamom, with some menthol and balsam remembrances.

Palate

The wine enters gently, almost shyly on the palate. This wine of El Grillo y la Luna has a medium body with velvety tannins and an elegant acidity that makes it extremely drinkable and pleasant. Liquorice, plums, toast and dry earth. Medium finish with some mineral and spicy remembrances.

The wine 12 Lunas 2018 is easy to drink, elegant and affordable. A wise buy.
