2004 VINA BORGIA (Campo de Borja, Spain)
This Garnacha (or Grenache)-based wine is usually a good buy in any vintage, and the 2004 is no exception. Medium blackish ruby color. Spicy cherry-raspberry fruit on the nose, with a scorched earth, minerally component. Solid, straightforward dry cherry-raspberry fruit, with decent amounts of character and concerntration for a wine this cheap. I think I got this at Central Market for about $6, but it's available elsewhere too. 86.
