Monte la Sarda, Garnacha, Vino de la Tierra del Bajo Aragon 2007

Deep red.

Vinturi - deep earth/truffle/nut, red cherry sauce and red licorice nose.

Quite deep in the mouth too, with bright, taut citrus zest (grapefruit/orange), cranberry, cherry and earth flavors. Acid-driven structure coats the front teeth in "chew". Nice, pungent, length. RFG and the real deal. Stupid price. Technical cork means this will be able to handle 3-5 years of cellaring. Buy it.

$13! From 45+ year old Garnacha=Grenache from an area 125 miles west of Barcelona.
