Tomas Blanco Crespo Rioja 2003

Interestingly this wine from Marks and Spencers doesn’t have a strong bouquet, however it might be wise to bear in mind we’ve just eaten chilli burgers with chilli sauce, roquefort cheese, and potato wedges covered in a Jamaican jerk…so there may have been some external influence in tasting this wine!

Despite all that the wine is lovely. It has a velvety texture and I defintely caught the black fruit taste, which was actually blackcurrant. My girlfriend caught the red fruit, which was actually raspberry. Then there’s a little bit of spice which made this wine a lovely choice. Very pleasant and quite reasonable from M&S.
