Wine Find: 2011 Vina Borgia Garnacha

October 16, 2012|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

This is one of the best boxed red wines on the market, and it's in wide distribution at good wine retailers. Spain's garnacha, known in France as grenache, is a red wine varietal that combines full body with soft, lush, easy-to-drink fruit flavors. This one is typical of a good version in that its charm and "fun factor" outweigh its complexity — which is great for the type of occasions in which a box is appropriate. This wine offers lush blackberry and wild berry fruit with hints of herbs, earth and chocolate. Its price is the equivalent of less than $7 each of four bottles.

From: Spain

Price: $25/3 liter
