Verasol 2011 Tempranillo-Garnacha

I was exploring a few wines from the Navarra region of Spain and stumbled across a unique blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha from Verasol.  After a slew of generic wines, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this bottle given its approachable price of $12.

Technical Stuff

A blend of 60% Tempranillo and 40% Garnacha from 20 to 30 year-old organically farmed vines.  Fermented in concrete and bottled unfiltered.  13.5% alcohol.

Tasting Notes

Enticing aromas of dark fruit with hints of herbs and minerals.  Full-bodied with ripe, dark fruit and balanced acidity.  Not complex, but an honest, flavorful wine. Paired really well with BBQ wings.
