My cousin Mike and his wife Marcy got us a bottle of Greener Planet Tempranillo – Garnacha for Christmas, which we enjoyed Sunday evening. It's the 2nd organic wine I've had, and my first from Spain. It's drinkable, not over-bearing, a nice choice for a middle-of-the-road red.
Some tempranillos and many garnachas can have a strong BITE to them, paired nicely with spicy Spanish foods, but the first glass of the Greener Planet on Sunday, and the final glass I had last night after returning from the Painted Desert & Petrified Forest were both smooth and delicious. I highly recommend it.
I THINK they picked it up at Sam's Club... but I am not sure. I sent them home with a bubbly bottle of Zonin Prosecco and a bottle of Château Calage (which we had a bottle with a dinner and everyone enjoyed).
