I picked up a bottle of Gnarly on a whim during my last trip to the wine shop (I liked the logo art and the description). For the price, I figured, why not? I'm so glad I did. This is a gentle wine that is full of flavor. Take everyone's advice and let it breathe for an hour or so before dipping in, though. I didn't and as a result the spice really shone through. Still a great wine and one that I'll be targeting and bragging about from now on. Oh, and I'll second the call to redesign the horrendous cork. My advice, screw in near the edge of the bottle to break the seal a bit. Worked for me, might for you. Enjoy.
