Almira Los Dos Grenache + Syrah "Old Vines," 2007

This wine is marked down to $5.99 right now at D&W in southwest Michigan, a very good value.

The wine greets with a spicy, briary Spanish Grenache nose. Whatever Syrah is here seems to be lurking in the background. I find plenty of alcohol and power--reminds me of Garnacha del Fuego. It lights up the tongue and lingers with a nice spicy bite. I don't find a lot of complexity, but Los Dos goes very well with a grilled pork chop.
