Join Tenacity this Friday for sampling some great little wines from Spain. Spain is the largest winegrowing country as far as the surface area covered with vineyards is concerned, almost one and a quarter million hectares of vineyards!
Zuazo Gaston Bianco Viura-2010 Spain-Super vibrant. Smells more like a perfume than wine! Comes across like a combination of green apple-lime salad with a little basil and mint-- and maybe even a hint of eucalyptus. It tails off with an orange marmalade nose. Light on the palate with orange blossom, Grand Marnier and lime-like flavors that are intriguing and noteworthy. Look for this wine to pair well with squid.
Crin Roja Cabernet-Syrah. 2009 Spain-Aromas of black raspberry, dried flowers, bay leaf, and chocolate-covered cherries with a round, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a crisp, mocha, smoky oak and pomegranate finish. Enjoy with game, white and red meat, pasta and cheese.
Crin Roja Tempranillo 2009- Spain- This fruity and elegant red wine offers intense aromas of ripe fruits and licorice. It releases notes of fruits and floral hints. The finish is long, with fruit nuances. Pair with you favorite grilled burgers, Mexican food or pizza.
