Don Ramon 2004 Campo De Borja wine review by (PB)

This $9 wine from Sam's Club is 75% Grenache and 25% Tempranillo. I really enjoy Grenache for its fruity if fairly simple back bone. On the pour the wine is quite light in color but with a pretty crystalline, cherry red presence.

The bouquet is thin though the nose is bright with raspberry notes and a touch of pepper. In the mouth the wine is juicy with more bright and slightly tart fruit. This is a simple wine, straight forward and tasty. A nice summer wine to put a bit of a chill on it and have some Hors duerves on the porch or out of a picnic basket al fresco. Raise a glass!

Sam's Club? Is that why I no longer can get Don Ramon at my local wine store? Interesting how the price has doubled.
