Two more from Lagranja

Earlier this year, I mentioned the inexpensive Carinena I enjoyed from Lagranja (link here).  Well, last weekend at Trader Joes, I saw other wines from Lagranja and since they too were only $5, I wanted to give them a try.  The tempranillo and tempranillo/garnacha blends were both 2009 vintages, d.d.origens, and were both wonderful table wines.  I enjoyed them with grass fed steaks one evening, hummus and carrots the next, and French & English cheese last night.  They complimented each very nicely. 

Again, the flying pig and the colored zebra were a little silly, but they DID help me to readily locate the Lagranjas on the store shelf, without any doubts.  If you've not tried some of the inexpensive Spanish reds from Lagranjas, you should pick up a bottle and have a taste.  For $5, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
