2005 Atteca Old Vines Garnacha

interesting 100% grenache wine from spain. black currant and black cherry nose. immediate fruit forward taste followed by tar and licorice flavors, and a stony finish followed by soft tannins. 14.5% alcohol content gives it a bit of a bite. overall a very nice meaty red wine that would compliment a good steak dinner, or game like venison if you like that sort of meat. priced at around $15-18. enjoy!
