A Rainy Day out here in California. Don't worry about me, I've got a Spanish red to keep me warm. This wine comes from the Catalunya region of Spain and is a blend of Merlot and Tempranillo. Dark Dark red, the wine smells of plums and raspberries and on the tongue a bit of spice is added as well as some green olive and anise. A solid, drinkable red that is well balanced. A bargain down at my local Trader Joes for a fiver. This should go well with the Braised Short Ribs that are bubbling in the oven. Threw a bit of the wine in the pot to make the flavors blend nicely.
