"Boysenberry and wild-raspberry aromas here with a succulent, juicy and very lithe feel on the nose. The palate has soft, bold and approachable style. Drink now."

This is the ultimate all-the-time, porch-pounding, lusciously textured red wine -- 100% Grenache from the heart of Rioja. A wine that massively over-delivers year in and year out, but the 2017 takes it up to a whole new level. The winery is unique - Bodegas Patrocinio winery is the driving force behind Uruñuela, a town of 967 residents uniquely positioned in the heart of the Rioja Alta. They started out as 200 grape growers with small vineyards in Uruñuela, who in 1985 decided to join forces to produce and market their own wines. This marked the birth of the exemplary cooperative, Bodegas Patrocinio.

Invite the neighbors over, because this is SHARING wine (at this price?)! C’mon!! All about sweet, fragrant (but dry, this isn’t a sweet wine), strawberry fruits, kirsch, raspberry extract, and this version is light on its feet, utterly affable, and uber-drinkable. JUST HURRY! Not a lot!
