We drank with another couple.
A red Bordeaux Garnacha. Smelling it, I noticed the aromas of blackberries. Very light.
We had it while we waited for the meal, with appetizers.

To enjoy between meals. Perfect wine to share with friends.
Red ruby colour with reddish brown edges. Concentrated aroma of red fruit jam. It tastes a lot like toasts, very nice.
