As I've written before, I've been sampling various inexpensive Spanish and Portuguese reds. Last night I opened one that will be a keeper, but not for some obvious trait. It's still an everyday wine, but it's better than my others. The word I'd choose is "solid," in the direction of a bordeaux, but not tannic, not fruity, not complex, not tending to sweet, Medium-bodied but satisfying in that it doesn't seem deficient in that regard. It's balanced, definitely easy-drinking.

Just curious. Maybe it's "just wine." :)
