A quiet evening at home with a Spanish Red. Yes, I've uncorked the latest vintage of Trentatre, a wonderful Spanish made blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Montepulciano. Picked this one up at Trader Joe's yesterday and had a glass last night. Wow - this wine should retail in the $20 region. Great value at about $6 US.
The nose is awash in layers of mocha, espresso bean and black currants. On the palate, plum, more espresso and a bit of oak (smokey vanilla). The red's body is medium to light and the wine finishes beautifully. I was thinking about grilled Salmon tonight, but stumbled upon a great Brooklyn Vegan article on pizzafied album covers and it's making me crave some Pizza. Hmmmm, this wine would go great with a grilled pie.
