Feeling hot hot hot.
Paisajes IX, Rioja, 2003.
This has true 2003 qualities!! That crazy year in the EU when the HOT HOT HOT weather created concentrated ripe stewy fruit. A blend of Tempranillo and Grenache This wine has got serious depth and fruit concentration. It's also starting to develop some secondary characteristics, like toasted nuts. (HA!! I said NUTS!)
For my friends who drink a lot of California wine, this is a perfect cross over / gateway into the Old World.
Come on in - it's the perfect time to take an Old World dip! Come naked if you like, no one's looking. (Well, I might be)
You can get it online at Domaine 547. My friend Jill owns this virtual joint, and she does free shipping in LA. That means you don't even have to get your lazy butt off the couch to get a bottle. $29.99.
