A wine to imbibe immediately! Smokey and toothsome, I'd like to put a tie on this handsome wine and take it out dancing. This Spanish vino knows all the moves, from the floral nose and dulcet undertones to the long drag of a finish, circling and circling like cigar smoke rings you gently wrap around your finger.  You know - the other kind of intoxicating...

Serve with: Beef brisket, specifically the kind found in the fabulous meat pies from Black Rook Bakehouse on Hastings in Vancouver. This wine really comes to life listening to a little Sunday night jazz by Danish pianist Søren Bebe.
