Prieto Picudo Estay – from the wine virgin

The second red wine of the evening was also an interesting wine, as it took me a couple of tastes to really even get a taste. The Prieto Picudo Estay is a red from Spain. The smell of this wine was not that enjoyable- it was a very sour and earthy smell. So as I took a sip, I was expecting for this smell to be evident in the taste. This was definitely not the case.

I think I was so caught off guard from the smell not being there in the taste, that at first I couldn’t really taste anything. I was expecting a sour, acidic taste (judging from the smell), but what I got was very muted and balanced. It tasted almost as if there was no taste. After tasting a few times and playing with the wine on my tongue, the taste became more enjoyable. I realized what I was tasting was a slight taste of chocolate. It wasn’t overwhelming, but still enjoyable. I still don’t think this wine is as flavorful as some of the previous ones. And also, the next wine also had this taste of chocolate – only way better. So the Prieto Picudo was kind of lost in the mix unfortunately.
