2008 Pieza El Coll Red Wine
This wonderful, medium-bodied red wine from Spain comes from century old vineyards located in the mountains that produce wines with distinct aromas and flavors. All of this wine’s varietals, which include, Aragón, Cariñena and Provechon, are bio-dynamically cultivated and follow the regional and ancestral viticulture traditions in order to maintain the natural yeasts of each vineyard.
Upon opening, let breathe for an hour to enjoy this wine to the fullest. Aromas of chocolate covered cherries and a rich earthiness are prominent and just urge you to take a sip. Flavors of black cherries, raspberries and coffee greet the palate and ends with a spicy, oaky finish.
This wine is excellent with food and reminds me of another one of my favorites, a Chilean wine, Casillero del Diablo. A definite re-purchase for me at a great price!
Check out the Casillero del Diablo Carmenere at Wine.com.
Food Pairing: A very food friendly wine pairing with everything from artisanal cheeses, chorizo and bacon salad, seafood such as pecan-crusted snapper or fish stew, oysters, beef tenderloin, braised lamb and pork with grilled vegetables.
