The French grape, Grenache, which is widely grown in the Southern Rhone and Languedoc,is also grown in Spain and known as Garnacha. Most of the Grenache in France is blended with other grapes and is rarely bottled as a varietal. In Spain, it is more often a stand-alone varietal. 

The Granito del Cadalso is 100% Garnacha and for the price it blew me away when I tasted it. A perfect blend of acidity and fruit, lower in alcohol then most, I found it to be an easy drinking wine.

Food pairings would be similar to a Loire Valley cab franc: roast chicken, pork or veal.
