Wine Review: This bright ruby colored Grenache from Spain opens with a black cherry and strawberry licorice bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, soft, and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild raspberry and blueberry blend. There is also a dash of pepper as well. The finish is dry and its soft tannins stick around for a while. I would pair this wine with an Angus burger off the grill. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: One hundred percent Garnacha from old vines planted at elevation and in red clay soils. Bottled without oak. A soft, forward and versatile wine with a rich, juicy flavor and finish.
