Granrojo 2005 Garnacha

Deep purple / dark red color. Smell of leather and dark stone fruit. Tastes of plums and black cherries, oak and roast beef. Dark chocolate in the smooth-textured if tannic finish. Blueberry too?

The next day emphasizes the fruit in the smell and flavor, brings out an earthy quality in the smell that was less apparent yesterday.

I enjoyed this, but probably would look somewhere else to spend my $12.99. Would certainly look into subsequent vintages.
