La Granja Tempranillo Garnacha 2011, a remarkable value wine with a very pleasant taste. From the Cariñena D.O. of Spain.

La Granja wine from Spain










Dark ruby and captivating with full ripe flavours. Notes of red cherry and just a whisper of exotic spice. Sweet tannins and a velvet-smooth finish.

At just $5 in the U.S., I was a bit skeptical, but the label, the great varietals, and the wine region all convinced me I should try it. After tasting it and enjoying it with friends, the verdict is that this is a quality wine. I’ll go back for more.

I purchased it at Trader Joe’s in Chicago. No sign of it in the LCBO in Ontario yet.

Pair it with white meats, sausages, or wine and cheese.
