Wise WINE Alert

Yummy, Yummy, Yum! We had this wine yesterday and I wanted to share it with you because it most likely is going to be a hot seller for the holidays. (to drink or to give as a gift).
AL Muvedre, 2004 Tinto Joven
The best way to describe it, in a nutshell - it tastes like a baby Amarone.
The strange thing about that is that it is from the Alicante region of Spain, nowhere near the Piemonte region of Italy where Amarones come from. Some further digging around taught me that the winemaker (although a Spaniard) has an Italian Winemaker for a grandfather. How cool is that!
We bought it for 9 euros here in Galway at Wine Warehouse and it tasted AMAZING!
So, stop what you are doing, call into your local Wine shop and see if you cannot get your hands on a bottle!
That is all the WiseWords for today,
