Vega del Castillo Garnacha 2008

I decided to try this as a potential sub £5 good value wine. I tasted it at a Wine Society tasting, and as I've (stupidly) tended to do lately it was one of the last wines that I tried. I thought it was so-so, but something in that price range would have to be truly outstanding to impress me at the end of a tasting.

So I bought it anyway. It's better than so-so, but that's about as good as it gets. It has some perfumey, baked dark fruit flavours and a slight grip. It's not as rich as I expected, being a wine from old vines. I suppose you're not going to get much better than this for under £5.
