Red Guitar Wine from Spain is my newest value red wine – Olé (Spanish for “there you have it” – loosely translated). It is a classic Spanish Rhone style wine – Tempranillo and Garnacha – and is very tasty – Olé. Normally I like Spanish Rioja wines that remind me of a dry, hot summer. However, this one from Navarra is refreshing and interesting -Olé. Rich and smooth but not too easy or sweet with medium tannis and a slight funky odour that isn’t unpleasant. Besides, I like the funk – Olé.
The website has a great musical flash intro page at redguitarwines.com (click the hyperlink to listen). The Red Guitar that is playing is fun to listen to and my wife likes that fact that at no time does a Gypsy King start singing at you – Amen and Olé.

Whenever the winemaker has a great description of their wine I use it – they know more about it than I do – Red Guitar brings the style and excitement of Spain to life. From grapes grown on up to 100 year-old vines in the ancient kingdom of Navarra, Red Guitar delivers rich flavors and remarkable complexity in every glass. It is a wine that sings of the land of the bullfight, tapas, and the art of living well.
