Tesco Finest Old Vines Garnacha, Campo de Borja 2005

Ahh…Tesco’s…to find you again…

I have long reminisced of the days I ran down your aisles with barely a pence in my pocket, my grubby grad student hands searching for whatever from your Finest was on sale that day. You always had a little something to throw my way, whether it was Finest butter, or Finest Jersey milk, or more rarely, Finest Chicken Masala. I loved your Finest — and not only for those pretty silver labels. And to think that I found you again…in the middle of a Seoul Saturday night.

100% Grenache Gorgeousness. Dark velvet blackberry jam, sun-ripened hints of Raspberry Starburst sweetness, tannins for pleasure not pain, light lasting finish.

Tesco’s, you’ve done it again.
