So you’ve been invited to a dinner party, even though your welcoming dinner-party host has told you not to bring a thing, you know that you should always bring a gift when you’re invited to someone’s home. A bottle of wine is the perfect solution, but choices are endless. You could bring white, red, rose, or maybe sparkling wine?
My general rule of thumb is always to bring red. Why? Because red tends to have a more “sophisticated” feel to it, plus is a classic option to serve other guests at a dinner party. Now that we have settled on that, what should you get? You could go with the obvious like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir. How about you surprise everyone at the table with a bottle of Garnacha?
Garnacha – also known as Grenache, is one of the world’s oldest and most widely planted wine grapes. Its primary production is located in eastern Spain (the original birthplace of the grape) – I bet you didn’t know that. In recent years, Spanish and French winemakers have been crafting innovative wines in which the Garnacha grape plays the starring role.
Garnacha wines come in a wide range of styles and aromas making them perfect for any occasion or seasonal celebration. Besides, drinking wines with a little-known name on the label come with its advantages. These remarkable wines are extremely affordable. But don’t let the cheap price tag fool you; these wines’ quality is superb.
The Evodia begins with a lovely aroma featuring rich blackberry and blueberry fruit, cola, spice, licorice, and pepper. Tasting this smooth and delicious wine reveals a ton of savory fruit and nice spice. It is also loaded with abundant mineral notes. The finish is long and spicy.
Particular is a young and inexpensive entry Garnacha. With a beautiful, radiant purple color, blackberry, licorice, and acid blueberry will delight your nose. Mouth is lightly drying young, crisp fruit with a long fresh finish.
Floral plum and black cherry aromas are nice and fruity. A bright, juicy, pure palate holds flavors of plum, blackberry, and chocolate. While nothing sticks out on the finish, this El Circo ends nicely and overdelivers.
Full disclosure, those are reviews from wine connoisseurs; I couldn’t tell the difference between a cheap or expensive wine. However, you better bring the best wine you can think of to my dinner party. – You know I’m going to Vivino that shit and find out how good or bad your wine is. Cheers!
