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

I paused a few moments outside to see the servers bring piping hot dishes to their patrons on the outdoors pedestrian street. I could see they all looked fabulous. So I ventured inside. I ordered the Fettuccine Bolognese. Handmade and fresh. Meat sauce to die for.
Owner-sons Tonino and Roberto made sure I was well looked after. Indeed I was. Superb in every way!
