Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Candidato Oro Tempranillo Grenacha 2006 Wine Review
Simple and extraordinarily tasty for the money! Pepper, blackberries and a mouth-watering juiciness. Full-bodied and smooth. 4.2/5

|Malcolm Lamont WSET Adv rated this wine as 4.4/5 with the following review:|
A lovely wine, and a steal at this price!
Lots of nice oak characteristics on the nose, including vanilla, clove, and oak. The oak is reminiscent of a well-oaked California Cabernet from a $20 bottle, or more! Some plummy red fruit from the garnacha (grenache in France) joins the bouquet.
On the palate, the roles reverse, and the fruity garnacha shines through with oak flavours to compliment.
Medium-bodied, refreshing and some decent tannic structure all for $7.70 - Move over Fuzion!
