Borsao, Grenache, 2009

This wine from the Bodegas Borsao in Spain is made from the Grenache (Garnacha, in spanish) grape. It's the poor cousin of the Tres Picos wine. Despite its similarities to Tres Picos, it reminds me a lot more of the portuguese wines such as Capote Velho and Berco do Infante. This one too is a bit bitter and spicy but quite pleasant. Definitely not as good as Tres Picos, but not bad either. Should do well with pasta or chicken. For about $10, it's a good value.
