The Best Red Wine for the Summer

I do not have a lot of time this morning to tell you about this wine and will keep this to the point.

There is absolutely no hyperbole in the title of this e-mail, this will be the best red wine for the summer in every case. Trust me on this one. The grape is Grenache or rather Garnacha as this is a Spanish wine from the Priorat region. The wine has an excellent ripeness of fruit on the nose and palate but just when you think its going to be a bruiser of a big heavy wine it delivers restraint, harmony and balance.

This is the sort of wine that made Priorat famous to begin with. The balance here has been lost to many of the great wines of the region that are going for epic proportion. This wine succeeds it its absolute approachability and quality for the price.

We will stock this wine all summer or for as long as we can as it has already gained a ton of popularity on the Virginia market and there is no telling when it will be gone. Again, I wish I had more time to really present this wine to you as it deserves it and many of you will freak out about the flavor profile and quality here.

Please suffice it to say that this is an awesome Spanish red wine that really will be the best catch all wine for the Summer goings ons.

I will go further to say this is the best red wine I have tasted at this price point in a really long time. Buy by the case goodness. An outstanding Wine Guild palate selection. Jump on it, love it, thank me later.
