I drank this wine with an amazing Osso Buco at a local restaurant.  I find the garnacha wines to have a bit of harshness to them and I wouldn’t be able to drink it without food, but as I tasted a sample of it before deciding what to order, I thought that it would pair well with the pork.  The softness of the Merlot I tried would be dominated by the flavors of the meal and I wanted something to stand up to this delicious dish.
