16 Mar Evodia 2014 garnacha
This is surprisingly good wine at a hard-to-believe price. Ten bucks!
Having said that, I bet some of you will read no further.
Surprisingly good. Hard-to-believe. Ten bucks!
What more do you need to know?
Probably nothing. Next stop, your local grocery.
But for those who like a little story with their wine, a few details:
Evodia is 90% Spanish Garnacha, aka Grenache.
Like with most Grenache-based reds, you will definitely taste fruit.
But there’s tannin and acidity too, in just the right amounts.
Yes, this is priced below our normal $15-$30 sweet spot but it’s doubtful anyone will complain about a wine that under-promises and over-delivers.
Robert Parker, probably the leading wine critic on the planet,
says Evodia is the type of wine he “wished had existed when I was in college”.
If Evodia had existed when I was in college, I never would have graduated.
