It certainly wasn’t the label that attracted me to this bottle, it’s pretty bizarre, to say the least. I bought it because I like Grenache or Garnacha but this kind of threw me, initially I didn’t like it then I did and this went on a while before I realised that the bottle was almost finished (not that I drank it all myself ) and I still couldn’t quite make up my mind.
This was 100% Garnacha, a warm climate grape from the Navarra region of Northern Spain. A little bit different from some Garnacha’s I’ve tasted recently, yes, there was still the overriding red fruit characteristic, mainly cherries and strawberries which gave it a very aromatic nose but it had a little more to it than I first thought.

Tried this initially with food but strangely enough
Left some in the bottle for the next day and everything had softened out a little making it much more approachable wine.
In the end, I did end up enjoying it, even though it took a little time to decide but it was significantly better on day two, so if you purchase a bottle open it up and air it for a while before drinking it, to be rewarded with an OK wine for the price.
My Rating 7.5/10 Corks
