Wine Review–Condesa de Saraballa Garnacha 2007Posted in : Garnacha / Grenache, Red Wine on by : The Gourmez
Other words on the label: Producto de Espana
The label displays an abstract, lined portrait on a mustard yellow background.
The nose brings me back to my first taste of freeze-dried strawberries at the San Francisco exploratorium when I was young. Astronaut food totally rocks. Paprika also has a presence here.
As for the actual taste, it is much less tart than the nose. Rich, ripe strawberries provide a well-rounded flavor with a subtle cardamom spice to perk them up.
This is a light and refreshing red wine but it lacks character after the first few sips.
