The 2012 Almira Los Dos Grenache begins with excellent aromas of blackberry and blueberry plus a little pepper and violet. The wine tastes smooth and silky with tons of juicy fruit (blueberry, raspberry and a little cranberry), spice and pepper and offers good acidity. Dry and a bit chewy tannins lead into the long, juicy and spicy finish. An excellent value!
This is a full and friendly wine from the Campo de Borja wine area in Northeastern Spain. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the “cierzo” wind that cools the vineyards nightly.
Los Dos pairs perfectly with casual fare such as pizza, hamburgers, and ribs.
