This bottle of Garnacha comes from the Aragon region of Spain. I drank this wine on the weekend with a thin-crust tomato bazil pizza with some olives on the side, and I must say they went well together.
The wine is delightfully deep purple, very juicy, mild and smooth. It has a bit of an earthy nose, which I always enjoy about Spanish wines. The taste was not terribly complex, it was medium bodied, and it had a balanced finish.
This is my third review so far, and it seems to be the same story here again. This is definitely a wine that is great to drink alone or with a light meal, but definitely not full-bodied enough to take on bolder food.
Overall, I give this wine 7.5/10 for taste and 3.5/5 for value.
My mission this week is to find a full-bodied red for under $10, and with the help of my new favourite website, Wine Align, I hope to be victorious. Stay tuned!
