So I was away at Blue Mountain for a few days snowboarding, and going back to the room after a full day of boarding makes you want to just be warm whether it’s by the fire, with hot food, under the blanket, or with a nice glass of wine. This wine is a wonderful wine when you need to warm up a bit. It certainly did the job for me.
This wine is a Spanish wine from the Rioja region and let me say this is a great example of what the wine from Spain is like. On the nose it shows aromas of strawberry, cherry, vanilla, warm spice, and a subtle coffee note. On the palette the wine is dry, full bodied, with good acidity and silky tannins with a soft, warm finish that lasts a good length. Enjoy this wine with smoked meat, lamb sausages, or pates. Great value wine of only $15.95 at LCBO.
