White Black Spanish? So, they've finally put out something moderately priced using the Spanish Black blended with French Colombard? It certainly sounded interesting, and being one who can't pass up the unusual, we bought a bottle. But how did it taste? Pretty damn good. It's definitely fruity, and has a certain pleasant "woody" taste to it. While the official description is "demi-sweet," it's not very sweet at all. Rather neutral on that count, actually. Yes, it's a blush, but it's darker than your average rose, and has a lot more body than white zin or white merlot. The flavor's an unusual one for this type of wine, and the best I can do is say it's a lot like a classic red without the heavy tannins walloping your mouth like a sledge hammer. It's good. I like it. And I'll be buying more in the coming weeks for sure.
