Drink me now.

Has it really been since Wednesday that I've blogged?? I've been traveling, but still it's no excuse!

And so just for that I've got a good one for you! Orobio, Rioja, 2006 by the maker of Artadi. We had this wine next to the Pesquera, and it was totally clean, full of fresh raspberry fruit, low tannin, moderate acidity and really easy drinking and pleasant. It's 100% tempranillo, aged 6 months in new French oak (it's VERY subtle oak) and the experts say it can age up to 10 years. But there's no need to wait. It drinks pretty great right now. 

Orobio sells for $44 at Quality Meats in NY, but that doesn't do us  a lot of good, huh? 

Rumor has it, that Orobio is available (2004) at Silverlake Wine and Rosso Wine Shop for under $20. What a good find. You can thank me later...

Yo Amy, I sell the 2004 Orobio. Regal doesn't have the 2006 (out here). Good stuff for the price. The 04 is like $15! Where's my Hocus Pocus? Angry Glendalians want to know...
