Bodegas Ateca Garnacha de Fuego, 2007
This Garnacha from the Calatayud region of Spain represents another great value wine that proves you can get interesting and delicious wines on a tight budget. The Garnacha grapes are from old vines that really excel in the high elevation and gravely soil vineyards of Bobegas Ateca. This is another fine wine from the Jorge Ordonez Selection. This is a medium bodied wine with a deep red color and a nose of fresh raspberry and citrus peel. On the palate there is ripe red raspberry, cranberry sauce and some spicy pepper. There are supple tannins that highlight the fruit driven style. This wine shows a zesty, focused personality that will pair well with any spicy dish. We enjoyed this with my Albóndigas with Tomatoes and Peas.
