Agustin Cubero UNUS Syrah 2006 Spain

From Bodegas Agustin Cubero in the Calatayud region of Spain comes this VERY dark, VERY opaque, VERY purple wine that is made from 100% Syrah grapes.

This one is BIG and RICH and a real bargain for something in the $12 range, found this at The Wine Room of Forest Hills.

On the nose- rich aromas of barnyard, bacon, horse and varnish, and flavors of black currant with a citrus edge, then emerging bursts of chalky violets and roasted peppers. Reminiscent of a Sicilian Nero D'Avola. Layered and complex and with a long finish.
