Red Guitar Old Vine Tempranillo Garnache 2006. Navarra, Spain.

Mmm, finally something to wax poetic about. This is a tasty little tempranillo blend. It starts out super sweet and finishes with a bitter tang, not unlike some relationships I've had. Zing!

I frequently fail to identify fruity or savory notes that wine bottles advertise, but this bottle tasted just like tart cherries with a hint of vanilla. Very drinkable, but bold and scene-stealing, so it could be tough to pair with flavorful foods. It's Spanish, and the cover art and name seem to gesture toward Picasso. At $10 with a $2 off coupon (Piggly Wiggly prices, thank you), I'd certainly buy another bottle.
