An Eric Solomon selection sporting a new label. This is always an excellent value that is a blend of 50% Garnacha, 30% Merlot, and 20% Syrah. Garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, cherries, spice, roasted herbs and slight black pepper. Full bodied. Light tannins. On the palate, this is easy drinking and very tasty. Lots of black cherry fruit with some black raspberries and cherries. Clean. Works great on its own and enough acidity to work well with pasta or burgers. Drink over the next five years.
This is a Rose wine from the region of Montsant in Spain. It is made from Garnacha (Grenache) grapes. An interesting color; sort of electric pale pink. Pretty. The nose has scents of celery and cherries which is nice. On the palate, this is light bodied and very easy to drink. Refreshing. This is not a fruit bomb. This retails for under $15 and provides a nice value at that price. Affordable for summer get togethers.
