Los Conejos Malditos

Los Conejos Malditos 2021 Vino de la Tierra de Castilla Tempranillo Carbónico ($14.99)

Los Conejos Malditos

Very dark purple in color with a garnet edge, Los Conejos Malditos breathes good, characteristic Tempranillo aromas and flavors: Black cherries, a whiff of licorice, and a hint of something floral like violets. Black cherries and plums are well structured with brisk acidity and soft but perceptible tannins in the flavor. A hint of stony minerality joins the party in a fairly long finish. 13.5% alcohol. U.S. importer: Valkyrie Selections, Healdsburg, Calif. (March 13, 2024)

FOOD MATCH: The producer suggests serving this wine with appetizers, pasta, and barbecue. It worked very well with a simple spaghetti and meat sauce made with Beyond Beef crumbles.

WHEN TO DRINK: There’s no need to gulp it down immediately, and its modern screw cap will protect it from cork taint. That said, though, it’s not really a wine for cellaring. Enjoy it at your leisure.

This food-friendly, textured red is a fine value at my local price and Wine-Searcher.com’s $14 average U.S. retail.
