Granrojo Garnacha 2006

Granrojo Garnacha 2006Smooth packaging, highly glugable and enjoyable contents at a low price.  Is there much else you could ask for?  I didn't think so.  I could tell you more, but really you just need to know those three points.

Rocks, plums, earth and tar to start with, then a bit of pepper followed by raspberry leaf.  A sarsaparilla note appears with some more time.  Medium bodied and easy to drink, light tannins.  Raspberry, dark cherry with some ink and roast meet.  Not something to think about really, but something nice to drink out in the sun.  87 Pts.

  1. I’d had the 05 and 06 in tasting lineups in the past and it never really stood out. Mainly because it was next to the likes of Roda, Finca Dofi etc where any sub $20 wine would like a bit flat.

    Having had a bottle on its own, I have confirmed my thoughts that tasting wine in big lineups is not the best way to find a good value wine (great to find the top end). Oh and that this is a very good garnarcha…
