El Escondido, Tempranillo from Argentina


El Escondido TempranilloFor those who thought Tempranillo can only come from the land of bullfighting, Franco and Flamenco, this Argentinean broth, a gleaming ruby red that gives off a field of strawberries and other red berries that I do not dare utter. You get the idea. Or you don’t. Medium+ juicy body with the palate splashed with the aforementioned fruits  (both the allowed and the forbidden) followed by a very long expansive finish. Lovely at 26.99, pair with a chorizo laden seafood paella or just on its own, a powerful sip. Salud!
