2007 Cruz de Piedra GARNACHA (Calatayud, Spain)

A good buy in a gutsy, working class red.

Bright, saturated ruby with vivid magenta highlights. The nose jumps out of the glass with ripe raspberry and crushed rock aromas. Intense fruity minerallly flavors, with good concentration, full body, but a slightly coarse texture. Would pair nicely with red meat sauces and grilled burgers. 86. Was $8.98 at Central Market on Westheimer and Weslayan.
