Loma Gorda Old Vine Grenache 2005 wine review (PB)

This Spanish red is intensely purple and young looking. I thas a deep berry nose and tons of fruit. That's the good part of this wine.

In the mouth it is thin and a bit tart and edgy. It is a blend of Grenache (65%) and 35% Syrah but it fails on both counts. It is not very "Grenachey" and it is just too acidic with a persistent tartness through to the finish. I pad less than $10 for this and even at that, it's a pass!
