Granacha de Fuego 2007

off to spain for this nicely priced ($9 a bottle) grenache. the nose was blackberries, blueberries and spice and earthy, wet leaves. the taste was quite surprising given the low price. it can be hard to find grenache that is worth while at this price point, but this one works well. black raspberries, pepper and licorice flavors with a nice long finish. this is a very fruit forward grenache with medium tannins and will work well with pizza, burgers or a good steak dinner. a very easy drinking wine that is well worth the price.
