Vino Love: Las Rocas Garnacha

I've been trying different wines lately, testing the "Life is too short to drink bad wine" motto that adorns my kitchen.  There have been some winners, and some losers, and I figured it's about time to keep track of which is which (that should make standing at the store trying to remember what the good ones were a little easier).

I'm a fan of Spanish reds, and have had some tasty Garnacha, so this Las Rocas ($15.99), did not disappoint.  Deep red color, and after it's open a bit, nice layers of flavor open up.

Sadly, the Nepenthe Tryst 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon/Tempranillo/Zinfandel blend ($14.99) didn't do it for me.  Sounds like an interesting combination, right?  It was thin, boring, and overall a disappointment.

So a winner - I'd buy a case of the Las Rocas, and a loser.
