This is where it's at. Since I arrived in Taiwan I've been overwhelmed by the dominance of French wines. There's plenty of good stuff to choose from... but it's all French. I was excited to find a place with a competitive Spanish selection. Tried a couple and found THIS:

It is damn good. Big and chewy with great dark fruit and just enough earthy tannins to balance the fruit and oak. I want to keep it all for myself so I'm not going to tell you where to buy it in Taipei... But if you live here and want to try it let me know and i'll share a bottle with you. *also available in Tempranillo and Monastrell
