Gran Familia Clasica, 2007, Valdepenas

A full-on, oaky Spanish red with a lot of oak, a bit of age and not much else - from Tesco

Expressive berry and spice aromas but rather baked and lacks textural interest; a used-car salesman of a wine, it grabs your attention but can't quite back it up.

Quirkily expressive, but ultimately rather vacuous; more Russell Brand than Jack Sparrow.

Retails for around £10; a better bet for a £10, well-made, Spanish red with plenty of fruit and oak is this Beronia Dos Maderas Crianza 2008‏.
