Atteca Old Vines Garnacha 2007 Wine Review (NW)



Tasting notes:

Blackberry, raspberry, herbs, and pepper on the nose

Full-bodied and herbal on the palate

Red berries and pepper on the finish

This could be a nice introduction to Spanish wine for some people. It's well balanced with fruit and herbal layers. At $15 or so, you'll be rewarded with a well-crafted Grenache. Raise a glass!

The Garnacha del Fuego....2005 I believe, is another option for a low-priced Grenache. You should be able to find it in most places, I know even Whole Foods carries it. And it should be $10-12. I've not had the Atteca, but I agree that Grenache, or Garnacha, is a good introduction to Spanish wine.
