+ Albardiales Tempranillo (2009) – This is a very lovely red with great legs. Made in the Castilla La Mancha region of Spain (with a very cute silhouette of Don Quixote in the bottom left hand corner of the label). It has a fruity aroma that gives the taste of berries balanced with a touch of vanilla. It has that wonderful feeling of expansion in the mouth and the throat , don’t know what that is called in wine tasting (maybe expressiveness), but I know it is the sign of a good wine. It is also pretty well balanced.
I ordered mine through BevMo and their buy one, get the second one for 5¢ sale and it was very much worth it. Various sites indicate it would pair well with cheeses such as Havarti, Cheddar, Manchego, etc. I actually had this one with Muenster but enjoyed it all the same. I am a wimp when it comes to cheeses…I prefer them mild and sweet. This winery also has a Malbec that I am interested to try. I definitely recommend this wine.
