If you forget the grape breakdown and producer this is a fun wine. It's like slightly beefed up beaujolais. Simple to the point, acid and tannin in harmony, and a stone-y finish.

Fruity and light. As someone said, like a Beaujolais. It's solid for $10 at K&L.

Multiple recs on this one, but really didn't enjoy it. Empty body and a vinegar mouthfeel.

Surprisingly good for $10. Fruity to be sure but w a light hint of earth for a bit of interest.

Light and refreshing with some nice herbaceous notes. Ideal for bringing to parties.

Was highly recommended at K&L Hollywood. Not sure why. Light-bodied almost to the point of why even bother.

A bit on the sweet & mild side as a Grenache should be. Thought the Carignan would add a bit more bold flavours. But smooth finish. Best slightly chilled. Would make a good base for a nice sangria.
