Puerta Bonita G5 2006

  • Area: Spain, Madrid
  • Grape: Garnacha
  • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Rating: Black 85 Dilettante 86

    Description: The blackberry and peppercorn nose is accented by some florals. The attack is very fruit forward with a sweet-n-juicy mouth-feel. Flavors of dark berries, cherries, black pepper and a hint of autumn tones. Totally un-oaked, this wine has a soft, round, lingering finish but no real low notes to reign in the sweet fruit. There really isn't much going on here and we think it's an informal, meatloaf kind of wine. Quite harsh when first opened. After 40 minutes in the decanter, the beast is tamed into submission and the pussy cat emerges.

    Price: $12
