OK – this is a one has a fancy Spanish name for the wine. It sits on the tongue in a lovely way, not spicy like a Shiraz. It has some gusto. I am having this with meat cooked in awesome pot. It has a nice linger, not too deep that it weighs down the mouth but is a serious note; it’s not a light fluffy note – it’s a serious note of wine taste that’s left in the mouth. Slightly moist on the mouth, very nice with cooked red meat.
Get this in the 12 Nights of Wine pack by TUBES, this is wine #6.
Smooth and a little bit of a tang at the back of the mouth. But with a hearty lot of ribs slightly charred, you don’t know the tang from the wine. It’s also sweet and sour like a warhead, but without the sour cringe on the tongue a warhead gives. Enjoyable & reasonably priced. The little bitterness on the tongue at the end is nothing to worry about.
You can buy this for around $10 according to Vivino, but does not seem to be stocked at Dan Murpheys.
Now this wine was a treat. Brought over for a meal by my brother. This wine wants to be different. For a start it not only brings along the crushed grape juice in the bottle, but also what looks like some ground pepper. You notice the pepper especially towards the end of the bottle – it’s trying to tell you: look I’m different to other wines! It is, it has a soft “tingle on the tongue” feel at the start of the bottle, and when you get towards the end of the bottle it is a definite “tingle on the tongue” as the ground pepper says hello. A treat to be had with red juicy steak, or slow cooked beef cheeks (yum yum).
This wine can be found at your local Dan Murphey’s for $30 (or less when you get it for a bargain on special!)
