Falset-Marca 2006 Etim Seleccion

Falset-Marca 2006 Etim Seleccion
Spain brings it with this inexpensive bottle from the Montsant region. Very complex wine for under $10, with dark berry and a lingering dry-oak finish. A bit minerally as well. Oak on the nose and enough tannins to give a medium bite. Hold it in your mouth for an extra second and you'll taste the blueberries.

This wine was a bit much to pair with the Turkey dish we had with it, but after diner (and the following day) it really came out well. The Etim is 60% Grenache, 30% Carigane, and 10% Syrah.

I will certainly be picking up additional bottles to keep on hand when I visit Costco next - viva la Spain! 7.5/10 rating.
