On its own, Alamosa’s Graciano is slightly out of balance. But when blended with Tempranillo and Garnacha, the finished product is like a taste of Spain in Texas. The wine has a rose petal aroma and very light tannins, which means you can enjoy its blackberry jam and cranberry flavors right now with no additional aging necessary. A nice summertime burger wine.
