I really like this wine for the price. A lot different compared to the usual Granacha from Spain. Funky but pleasantly surprising.
Better the second day after exposure to air in the bottle. Slightly chilled, it has smoky, spicy flavors. Second day, it opens up with fruit, spice and a nice finish. Next time I buy it I'll decant and let it sit until room temperature.
