One sniff of this exceptionally well-made red and it's got you. The aromas are big, juicy and luxurious—the kind of wine that makes you feel rich just by drinking it—and like so many of the new wines on the market, comes with a marketing ploy aimed at the young.
Nothing wrong with that. Disco’s back label says: 'El vino de la gente que ama la música' (wine for people who love music) and while I’d say that’s certainly true as I sip a glass to a Leonard Cohen tune or two, I have my doubts as to whether it’s the kind of brew to make you want to get up and dance. It’s actually got mellow and mild written all over it. The kind of bottle you want to crack open two or three of and talk nonsense long into the night.
In the mouth then you’ve got lots of lush black fruits, though not necessarily blackberries. It’s more plums and damsons, a little vanilla and caramel. It’s quite sweet, what I’d call a ladies' wine, and definitely a date wine. Something that makes you feel immediately relaxed and at peace with the world. The texture is velvety, almost buttery but there’s just enough acidity to keep it perky and interesting. You could have it with food certainly—roast beef is an obvious one, big flavours and aromas for big hunks of meat, and it works well at lunchtime as it doesn’t get you too drunk too quickly—but it’s a wine I’d serve at a party. One to keep folks merry long into the night.
