Wines as satisfying as Legado Del Moncayo Garnacha by Isaac Fernandez Selección 2020 are hard to find under $15 a bottle. This wine is just that. This 100% Garnacha is fermented and aged in stainless steel. Unoaked, soft, rich, fruity and easy to drink.

This is THE ultimate house red!

We always have a case of this on hand at home (at least when it’s available). It is one of those few wines that consistently hits the spot, without having to think too hard about the price. And the WineOnline faithful agree – with countless member reviews, vintage over vintage.

Garnacha (Grenache) is so versatile, extremely drinkable, never mind delicious. Some of the more famous appellations producing wines primarily from Grenache include Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, and most Cotes du Rhone.

It is rare to find any wine from these appellations at this price point. There can be no debate that it’s a) an irresistibly delicious companion to barbecue fare; and b) a showstopper value at under $15.
