Viñestral Tinto Joven, Rioja, 2013
A 13.5% alcohol blend of 60% Tempranillo and 40% Grenache (no carbonnic maceration, although it sure tastes like it) with no oak. Medium-purple-magenta with well-formed legs; dry, medium-light-bodied with freshly-balanced acidity and medium-light phenolics. Fresh and juicy; toasty, slightly jammy with mostly red cherry-berry fruit and a hint of dusty terroir. Clean and simple and easy to drink. Incredible value. Spec’s Score: 88+.

Citrus Ginger Bellavitano is a delightful cheese that is hand-rubbed with a unique and exotic blend of spices, including ginger, onion, garlic, red bell pepper and citrus. The flavors work well with the slightly fruity, creamy, tangy notes of the Bellavitano cheese. Pairs well with a Chardonnay, a light red wine or a Prosecco. 5.3oz
