I've had many people ask me if this "excellent wine is affordable" and to their surprise, I say, "better than you'd expect" Frankly, I'm embarrased to tell them HOW affordable it is for the quality.
Very drinkable right out of the bottle and pares nicely with spicy foods.
The wine is amazing at this price point! The review by "Latte" is off base. The comparison to Acetone is just plain false.
This Garnacha is not really what I would consider typical of the grape. The color was a bit darker, the heat was a bit more prominent and the white pepper was zesty on the black cherry yum. It was in fact very much like a Zinfandel rather than the more Summery spice and jam I look for in a Grenache. But I'm a big fan of Zin as well, so I was loving this wine. And the price point can't be beaten. Well worth the taste but let it air out a bit in your glass first.
I find this wine extremely bitter & too acidic -- tastes a bit like what I imagine acetone would.
