Divit’s Pick: 2015 OGV Old Vine Grenache, $9.99

After drinking so many good wines in December, I decided to shoot low for January with a Spanish Grenache for $9.99. My good friend Craig Baker at Misa imports alerted me to this wine which got a whopping 91 points from the Wine Advocate and a “trust me, it’s delicious” from Craig. He was not kidding. One hundred percent old vine Grenache from the Calatayud region of Spain, a big pile of crushed berries and some lovely dusty cocoa powder tannins make this easy to enjoy, but not just soft and sappy. This has a good amount of structure and depth in the finish to give it lift and make it a complement to a lot of different week-night meals. You should buy a case. Really. I did.
