Bodegas Javier Asensio, Crianza, Navarra, Spain 2000 ($17) – Garnet in color with an aromatic plum, spice and eucalyptus nose; nicely concentrated and forward dark fruit flavors with some mint and dusty tannins; excellent balance of fruit and tannin. Needs to breathe for a while to show it’s best, but a very good wine made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 20% Tempranillo. A producer to watch for unique and complex wines at bargain prices. Score: 8.5/10

Ken Rosenberger says
It has been my great pleasure to create a collection of wine labels from my home in northern California. It would be with great honor to be able to include your labels in my collection. I am very interested in older vintage dated and vineyard designated labels. Thank you very much for your consideration.
