Bright deep purple color. Exotic aromas of rose water, ivory and black olives, black violet and overripe strawberries, and marzipan with a lightly tannic, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long mexican mole, silt, cassis and plum fruit leather, and hint of green pepper finish with crunchy tannins and a suggestion of oak. A dark and mysterious Priorat with great aging potential; reminiscent of exotic perfume.

While there are several important red wine regions in Spain, such as Rioja, Priorat and Ribera del Duero, other regions are home to some distinctive wines. The largest of these is Castilla-La Mancha, neat the cities of Toledo and Madrid in central Spain. This is one of the largest expanses of vineyards in the world; red wines range from lighter-styled reds to Gran Riservas made from Tempranillo, much in the style of the best wines of Rioja. Wines from La Mancha are relative values.

Other regions include Catalonia in northeastern Spain where Penedès and Empordà wines originate as well as Alicante from the province of Valencia on Spain's south east coast.
