2007 Don Ramon Grenache and Tempranillo blend: Very good value.

april 24, 2010: this vino tinto barrica, 75 percent grenache and 25 percent tempranillo, was very good. first of all, we should say this was one of dennis' recommendations, and it was good enough for victoria to buy another bottle just for alan to try. we had this with st. louis mustard-pepper seasoned grilled pork loins, steamed carrots and canned peas.

greg said he loved it and that it was very good for the price. it was a good, subtle wine. victoria said this spaniard didn't have much of a nose, but the flavor was slightly cherry. the most noticeable aspect of this wine was its texture, which was very smooth and gentle. it was also very easy to drink, and to finish.

12.5 percent alcohol. about $10 at winetree.
