$10 Tuesday: Go-to Garnacha

Here is another damn fine under ten dollar wine from Bodegas Borsao (Campo de Borja D.O.). We paid $8 but, I've seen it for as low as six and change.

The 2007 vintage is all about the blackberry: A hint of tobacco and stewed cinnamon stick and blackberry, blackberry, blackberry. It's super fruity but still shows best when paired with bold spicy dishes with lots of garlic. Great pizza wine!

This is my new favorite go-to eight dollar red!

Nice to hear about this one. I will look into it. I hear that the wines from Spain are basically organic because they do old style farming, no chemical products on their grapes. Have you heard anything about this?

Inexpensive wine need not be frowned upon as it can be good too. This is true of most things in life, not to mention cigars. Cuban cigars are one of the joys of life. If you want best cigars , do have a look online.
