Snooth Wine Search:
Down on the table, a splash in a tasting glass, another to slurp while preparing the food, conversation flows, the meal is produced and before you know it the bottle is emptied. A sign, perhaps of a decent bottle; one that is imminently drinkable, eases the flow of conversation and lends much, sublimely to a pleasant evening.
Which is the long way round of saying I neglected to pen any tasting notes. Which is fine really, as after a while they make for boring reading. It also explains why the photograph is of an empty wine bottle and clean glasses.
Wine Tasting Note: Viña Alarba Garnacha Viñas Viejas, 2005, Calatayud, Spain.
Purchased from Planet of the Grapes [more info] for £6.99.
The Viña Alarba makes for pleasant drinking in a characterful, deep and brooding way. Made from vines aged between 40 and 100 years from the small region of Calatayud (Zaragoza province). A region perhaps not as well known as the neighbouring Cariñena and Borja regions.
