A fireside gem
Tierra Aranda Tempranillo
I’m back inside after 3 times out in the snow with my little bundles of joy. I’.m winding down my parental duties for the evening and getting ready to pour a glass. Tonight I opened this gem from Ribera del Duero, and I made the right choice. It’s a deep ruby color wine full of enticing aromas of dark fruit, earthy spice maybe a little cola. It tastes of subtle licorice, smoke and dried fruits.
I needed this after being pelted in the head by snowballs. I have cleaned up more tracked in ice from my living room than any person should ever have in their house, so I deserve a treat.
My plan for later is a good book, cuddled up with my wine glass and my pug who despite his snoring and taking up most of the blanket I love sitting with. Cheers.
