Do not know origin or name of wine? Remember label. Can you help?

I had this wine the other day that blew me away and of course I don't know the name or origin. I'm hoping you guys can steer me in the right direction.

The label was bright but dark (I hope that makes sense), mostly red with I believe some equally as bright/dark orange. It had what looked like dark brown or black branches running through it.

It was a red wine. The taste was phenomenal and... big. Really big with a wonderful after taste that lingered. It was fruity and kind of smokey.

Does anyone know what I was drinking?

Thanks so much for any and all help!

So, I'm going to go WAY out on a limb here and speculate. This forumite is apparently newly registered (? maybe a newbie?), descriptors seemed vague, limited, even rudimentary (which, to me, is FINE, and part of the learning process). Also noteworthy is the lack of response from "regulars" (possible indication that the inquiry might be better suited to the "Learn Wine" forum...regulars are less familiar with "entry level" wine). OK, rambling (I know, sorry!) My guess: Garnacha de Fuego. The colors work...maybe flames appeared more branch-like to the person posting? Thoughts?

I think that the Learn Wine Forum is basically a waste of space. Posts in the other fora are much more likely to get read and responded to, even if the subject is .....learning about wine.

Thank you for anyone willing to get involved with this.

For those of you concerned with my tardiness with my response, my apologies. I own my own company and this is my busy season. Sometimes I simply haven't the time to visit the wine forum immediately due to my business not being one where I am constantly in front of a computer. As much as I may be quite ignorant when it comes to wine, I assumed this was indeed a good place to learn more. Most people don't pop out of the womb knowing all about wine. Now I'm not one to apologize for something like that, but next time I'll be sure to try and present myself in a more learned manner.

I drank it at a friends house and no one knew what kind it was after the fact. I went back to the store (Spirited Gourmet, Belmont, MA) where it was bought but could not find it, even with the help of a knowledgeable employee.

Sadly, it is not the "woop woop", Garnacha de Fuego, Ducru Beaucaillou, Insignia, Cayuse, Gnarley Head, Bogle or Adome.

Again, thank you for your willingness to participate. I'll keep looking.

I hope you all have a GREAT holiday. Smile
