Candidato Tempranillo Garnacha

2007 Candidato Tempranillo Garnacha, $7.70. LCBO#523811.

Lately I’m loving Spanish wine. It is coming close to dethroning Italy as my fave source of old world wine. Or maybe I should call it old world with a new world price twist?

This bottle is simple and enjoyable. Medium bodied, a bit oaky, incredibly smooth. Need I say more?

We had it with burgers, which were a great match. It was still tasty to sip after dinner, the smooth finish helps it do well without food.

Overall, I give this wine 8.5/10 for taste and 4.5/5 for value.
