More Spain - more value...

I know I'm being redundant but here's another Spanish value, Evodia 2008. This is old-vines grenache bottled for import EEDW favorite Eric Solomon. I used to be afraid of private labels but in some cases they are quite good. Big cherryish aromas greet you while some of that grenache pepperiness emerges after airing a bit. In the mouth you get more fruit, concentration and lift then you expect for $8.99 and though it finishes a bit hot because of it's 14.5% alcohol, this wine is an excellent value at this price point. Should be great with burgers or any grilled meat....grilled shrimp too. Cheers.
