La Granacha Cotes du Rhone Villages '04

Lagrancha There's nothing like discovering a great bottle of wine, especially when you only pay about $10 for it. Every few weeks, I like to pop into the Wine Discount Center and see what gems I can find. A couple of weeks ago while browsing the Cotes du Rhone corner, I focused in on a bottle that grabbed my attention: La Grancha. There was something about the label that I liked and when I inquired about the wine, the guy at the store didn't hesitate when he basically told me to just buy it.

So when we cracked it open at a friend's house for dinner, everyone was equally thrilled about it. The wine has a deep purple color with a full nose of cherry and chocolate. It's made from 80% old vine Syrah and 20% old vine Grenache, is super full bodied and is reminiscent of a bold Zinfandel with strong raisin flavor and some excellent spice. La Granacha is perfect for sitting around a table at a dinner party or kickin back in front of a fire.
