Value Alert!…2010 Bodegas Terra Sigilata Filón Garnacha

From time to time I come across a bottle of wine that has a surprisingly good Quality/Price Ratio (“QPR”).  Then I can’t wait to share it with you, because that’s what us wine lovers do – we share!

This is a kick-ass Grenache from Spain where it is known as Garnacha.  Spain is renowned for value wines, and this one from the Calatayud DO (Denominación de Origen) located in the south-west of Spain is a righteous bargain!  The region is similar to certain areas of  Arizona or Utah, with tall red buttes and dry arroyos at high elevation (1,800 – 2,600 ft.), and a continental climate.  The fruit for this wine is produced from dry-farmed 30-40 year old vines.

My review follows:

Inky nearly opaque violet color with dark red fruit, leather and anise aromas.  On the palate, medium-bodied with smooth well-integrated tannins, and a great mouthfeel with dark cherry, raspberry, spice, and licorice flavors.  Short-medium finish. Great QPR @ $10/bottle!  Will buy more!  To find this wine, click here
