This weekend, Metro Wines has been pouring "Los Dos," a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah. The wine maker says the soft, berry flavors of old-vine Grenache meet the depth and complexity of Syrah in this full and friendly wine from Campo de Borja in Northeastern Spain. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River Valley, the historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the "cierzo" wind that cools the vineyards nightly. With a fruit forward palate of cherries and blackberries, the 2011estate bottled Los Dos carries through to a refined, lengthy finish.
For $7.99, this wine overdelivers. After tasting this wine, Metro Wines customers have agreed and Los Dos is one of the biggest sellers this weekend. We are down to a case, so drop by the shop. This is the kind of wine to buy by the case, and another case, and another case.
