Marco Real- Ganarcha 2005

There's no way raisins and wine come from the same place.  That's heresy.

This garnacha from Navarra was both deep and earthy with hints of raisins (duh, raisins come from the same place as wine does).  This has lots of tannins that stick to your teeth well after your last glass.  Don’t make the same mistake we did, though:  we opened this too early in the evening, and it made the next bottle we had seem pedestrian in comparison even though it was delicious.

$8-11
