Well, I decided to stop with the frou-frou for a while. I have been sick, and tired, and have too much going on to even think about girlie concoctions that may or may not be well-received.
However, everyone will at least drink wine sometime in their life, right?? So this week’s offering is a Spanish red table wine called Tempranillo. Tempranillo grapes are the earliest harvested grape because it ripens several weeks earlier than most Spanish red grapes. They are native to Spain, but are now harvested in the New World, including here in Texas. This week’s recommendation is Paso a Paso Tempranillo.
The wine has enough tannins to pair with food, but not overly so that you can’t enjoy a glass or a bottle on its own. Full bodied and very reasonably priced, it has a wonderful aroma and pairs awesomely with chocolate. Trust me on that.
It also pairs well with film noir cinema
