2009 Tinto Pesquera Ribera del Douro - deep and dark fruit with really nice spice and a medium-long finish.

Little bit too Much Brett as the wine opened up but great pairing with paella with structure and acidity

This is some amazing wine. One of the most memorable I've had lately. Rich yet light fruits, well balanced, and great finish. $36 from Orion, worth every penny. Great to drink by itself.
