Huge value red #wine blend.

#Greneche #Monastrell mix. Dark , wild berry aromas. Opaque in the glass , shiny sheen. Palate is moderate with medium body, mild tannin and deceiving acid. More tart, dark fruit flavors. Good structure. Opened 3/23/17

Found on sale for $8 at buschs.Black cherry and plum, one of the more tart reds I’ve had. High tannin, long grit on tongue but not in a bad way. Tobacco leather smoke flavors. Smells reminiscent of slim jims. Very interesting wine well worth the price.

Insane value from Spain. Rich fruit, forest floor and mushrooms. Way more grip and presence on the palette than I would expect from a wine this price.
