6 Types of Wine to Try
If you like Merlot, try Grenache.
Devotees of medium-bodied red wines who like the soft texture of Merlot will enjoy Grenache (or Garnacha, as it is called in Spain) for its strawberry and cherry flavors and the festive kick provided by its higher alcohol content, (usually about 15 percent). Spicy cinnamon and licorice notes enhance the varietal’s convivial character. Drink the intensely juicy Tres Picos Garnacha 2012, ($18, at liquor stores) with turkey burgers or pork fried rice.
