2003 Villaroya de la Sierra "IA" Garnacha (Spain)

A GREAT buy! Got this Spanish Grenache for only $4.26 at Spec's Warehouse on Smith. Deep ruby color. Nose has scents of ripe raspberry, pine forest, and talcum powder. Simple but satisfying and relatively robust flavors of cherry-raspberry fruit and stones. Good, clean, soft finish with very nice balance. A real steal in a ridiculously cheap everyday or party red. 86.
