Great wine to smash out by the glass with a bit of meat (and maybe a few other bits....)

Something different tonight, Karen and I decided on a Excellent Rioja from Spain. Tobelos 2013, which is 100% Tempranillo. Opened 30 minutes ahead. First impression Rioja had a Great Mouthfeel with loads of black fruits and a touch of spice box. The tannin here are mild and in perfect balance with the fruit. Also on back palate a little wood. Enjoyed with Cobb Salad with a white Balsamic dressing. Wine purchased at WineWorks and salad at HoneyGrow in our center. Bravo to this winery! CB-95 Rating in my book! PS brushing up on top flight Riojas, which we are going to Spain’s Famous Rioja Country in 2 weeks! #wineworks #spainishwine #honeygrow
