I’m actually getting this up before the middle of the month… Are you impressed? Anyway, once again I go to Spain to find a great value! This time, it’s a lighter style Garnacha that could actually be chilled if you so wish. I personally am not a huge fan of chilling reds, but I get it. Like Rose’ on steroids I guess. This little gem is from Madrid and I believe perfect for Spring drinking. Pair it with roasted chicken, salads, prawns, salmon, lamb, mussels, you name it.

2021 Zestos Garnacha Tinta (Vinos De Madrid, Spain)… $13.

Aromas of strawberries, black raspberries, pomegranate and licorice. Raspberry and strawberry notes on soft, structured tannins, with hits of pomegranate and licorice underneath. A little “grip” on the finish with a solid kiss of white pepper and spice. Pomegranate notes linger. Good balance and integration. (B-)

I am a blue collar wine guy who has been in the biz for over twenty years. I work at a store in a tourist destination stop. I work hard at finding the best wine for the money. I love the challenge of learning my customer's palate so I can find the best wine for them, whether it is Petrus or white zinfandel. Cheers!
