I don't recall why I bought this – it's been on the rack for a while, it either came recommended from the wine shop or we tried at a tasting and dug it...either way, this is about ten bucks.
Earthy and chocolatey notes on the nose.
Earth, cherry, and chocolate. Not a whole lot of oak or tannins – this is a very nice, smooth wine. Well made and a great value.
There's a bit of heat on the finish with some more of that dark chocolate.
For $10, this is an obvious recommendation – a solid and well-made Old World Grenache which I'm a big fan of.
