Cannonau Di Sardegna Riserva 2005 wine review by (PB)
I grabbed this bottle made from the Cannonau grape thinking I was trying a "new grape" only to find out it is another name for the Garnacha or Grenache grape. Oh well, it was a decent wine made on the island of Sardinia.
It pours like a Pinot Noir with a light--even pale cherry hue but it doesn't smell like Pinot at all. This wine is serious with a heavy bouquet of herbal, and dark ripe berries and plums.
In the mouth it is lively with pepper and hints of spice with lively tannins. This wine was surprisingly better than I anticipated! At $11, raise a glass.
