2011 Nostrada GARNACHA (Campo de Borja, Spain)
Bright, luminescent ruby color. Laid-back nose of ripe, raspberries and raspberry syrup, along with powdered stone dust. Fairly full-bodied, bone dry, with intensely minerally dry raspberry fruit along with a smoky, bitter-root thing in the finish. The bitterness at the end probably nixes this as a cocktail/party wine, but it went really well with Thai take-out. B. Was $8.99 from Total Wine in Fairfax, VA. Imported by Saranty Imports, White Plains, NY.
