Winery – Bodegas Vinos de León
Appellation – Castilla y León
Color – purple
Aroma – chocolate, berries
Finish – perfect balance of acidity and tannins with a bit of mineral taste

I really enjoyed drinking this Spanish wine with a ragu bolognese I made for dinner. It stands up well to a red meat sauce but is also good with a nibble of cheddar. I like the salty (minerally!) aftertaste and the slight tannic and acidic finish. At $10 per liter, it’s a very good everyday table wine.
