How many great things in life can you get for 8 bucks? C’mon, a friggin’ large-size Chicken McNugget meal is 8 bucks. You can’t even get into a crappy summer blockbuster at the movie theater for 8 bucks—just the large tub of popcorn with fake butter. But 8 bucks will get you a BORSAO Garnacha. What’s a Garnacha?—just a delicious, ripe, full-bodied, dark Spanish red wine with a racy finish. If value-priced Cabernet Sauvignon is a Colbie Caillat, then this Garnacha is your Shakira. Shake your thing, because it’s hot, baby. -J.M.
