Artazu Artazuri Garnacha Navarra 2007
Lots of bang for your buck from this find by importer Eric Solomon. This Spanish garnacha goes with just about anything I have tried. Chicken off the grill, pasta with vodka sauce, even spicy poblano sauce. What a gem. It's funny reading other wine reviews about this wine. Some taste plums, blackberries, raspberries, even strawberries. It is definitely fruit forward but inky, oaky and with a mineral essence. I taste cherries, smoky cherries like the cherry tobacco my uncle used to smoke. I also read a review that noted it's friendliness. It's not much for conversation, but we are definitely friends.
