It helps when you have friends over, because then you can open more wine! This week @WineGuyTO and I opened a bottle of 2007 Crianza Rioja Tempranillo from Bodegas Montecillo as our wine of the week. We did not really pair it with anything deliberately, though it went very nicely with our Fermin Chorizo Iberico that we received in our Carnivore Club box last month.
It had a good colour, with soft fruits and raisins on the nose. The palate also showed plum notes and had some decent tannin to balance the fruit. There was quite a nice finish of a medium length. We are never disappointed with this winery which is probably why we may have a few more bottles in the cellar 🙂
