A Tempranillo Good Time!

Ole Imports impresses me again!

It’s a dreary night in NYC tonight and I’m craving something with SPICE to get me out of this mood I am in caused by the weather.  Well, I just opened up a bottle of Barco de Piedra from the region Ribera del Duero, kindly sent to my by Ole Imports and BOOM – My spirits are lifted!  This light fruit bomb of red berries filled with delicious spices (I taste cinnamon!) with cedar lingerings and a delicate finish is taking me away from this rainy Wednesday and floating me to the  SUN of Spain!  What a wonderful red drinking wine at an amazing value.  $15 – $17 in price point… Really?  By the sophisticated bottle and elegantly light taste, I would think this wine was MUCH more costly.  Have fun fooling your friends and CHEERS to Barco de Piedra.  Thank you again to Ole Imports for letting me try this remarkable bottle!

Where to find in NYC: Astor Wines & Spirits – 399 Lafayette St. (at East 4th St.) {here}
