2007 Trenza Tinto

Threw together a bunch of leftovers for dinner tonight including pulled pork shoulder, roasted red potatoes, aromatics and a farm-fresh egg. Reaching for the smoked Spanish paprika cemented my choice of wine for the night. The 2007 Trenza Tinto, San Luis Obispo County is a blend of 42% Tempranillo, 40% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre and 5% Grenache. I think it's flavors are faithful to the new wave of high end Iberian red blends. The nose is packed with licorice, vanilla, ripe black fruits and sweet earth. The palate is relatively low in acid with good tannins and copious earthy/loamy flavors. Leather comes more to the forefront the longer the wine is exposed to air. Long, earthy finish. Fabulous color. 14.5% alcohol. Worth every penny of $26.99
