Food Pairings for Olivares Altos de la Hoya
My new house wine.
solid red, let it breathe for a bit to open it up, cherry, raisin
weak....this is my worst wine week ever...an amalgam of bland muted flavors
92% Monastrell, 8% Garnacha. 2004 foi RP90
"Bright purple. Black raspberry and cassis aromas, with spicy mineral and floral elements gaining power with air. Powerful dark fruit flavors are sweetened by vanilla and cola nuances and lifted by juicy acidity. Impressively velvety wine, with very good finishing breadth and lingering spiciness. Plenty of bang for the buck here." – Stephen Tanzer
