Red Guitar 2005 Wine review by (PB)


This Spanish old vine Navarra is a blend of Tempranillo (55%) and Garnacha (45%). The Garnacha carries the bouquet contained in this cranberry colored wine with a stellar rose colored rim. Elegant strawberry bouquet with a black cherry core. It is surprisingly sweet in the mouth with a chocolate center which seems unique for these grapes.

It is more new world than old in style and should be a very popular wine as it is made with the "modern" palate in mind. It makes me wonder if Michelle Roland is behind this creation.

At any rate, it is really pleasant in spite of less than attractive label and name. Raise a glass because this is a nice $11 wine.
