2007 Trenza Tinto

Yeah, yeah, I know I've written about this wine before. But it's one of my favorite wines of the past 5-10 years and I think everyone needs to pick up a 6-pack of this stuff. The 2007 Trenza Tinto, San Luis Obispo County is a blend of Tempranillo, Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache. Shows fantastic licorice, dark berry, sweet earth and a bit of vanilla oak. Great, thick texture with acidity and tannins to match. Really shines with food. About $26.

We drank this tonight yet another winning recipe from Weight Watchers (no, I'm not on the Weight Watchers regimen); this time an interpretation of the chicken with sherry vinegar and grape tomatoes. The acidity of the Sherry vinegar and tomatoes really worked well with the acidity of the wine.
