Filon, Garnacha, 2011

3/5 $7.99

In drinking this wine I learned something important, “Garnacha” is just the Spanish term for what us in the good ol’ US of A call “Grenache.” On at that note, this is a pretty great one! With flavors of cherry and blackberry, but light tannins, it is a solid wine that does not hit you over the head with too much intensity. Easy to pair with charcuterie or flatbreads, it’s a wine that could impress without needing to break the bank, which is always a positive for an Amateur Wino.

Advertising professional by day and wine drinker by night, often overwhelmed by the sheer choices in wine stores, I have a tendency to not drink the same wine twice. My biggest tip to all Amateur winos, never swirl the glass in your hand, you just look pretentious. Swirl it on the table and you'll never worry again about that favorite sweater having a big red wine stain on it.
