From the bottle:
Marqués de Montañana is the name of a village close to Zaragoza where in the 18th century there were several gourmet marquises. The region Calatayud is known for its high altitude (900 metres) and low yielding Garnacha bush vines which will guarantee us good quality grapes for a long time to come. Black pepper and earthy spiciness with enjoyable tannins. Try with Spanish tapas, on its own or with lamb chops or charcoaled hamburgers. 13.9% alcoholThe 2009 Marqués de Montañana Calatayud Garnacha tastes just like grape juice, and not very good grape juice at that. This is a thin wine, that tastes watered down and ends with a sour finish. It was slightly better on day 2 but still not recommended.
