It's chili time. Well, Turkey Chili... and red wine goes great with turkey chili (it also goes in the turkey chili). So, this afternoon as I was cooking, I opened the Albero Tempranillo, poured myself a glass and started chopping, sauteeing and sipping. (it is a great way to cook)
The Tempranillo on first sip seems lush. But then as it aerates and warms (it was in my unheated pantry, and it is 16 degrees outside -oops) this wine becomes light and fruity. It has a little bit of a tannin aftertaste, but that just adds a layer of depth to the flavor.
Just like my previous commenter said, Albero puts out a good wine - so far I am 2/2. I really like it, and will be buying more bottles to keep on hand. The minute I sipped it, a lot of ideas came to mind - I could imagine it as the base for an amazing sangria in the summer, I can also imagine it as a nice clean sipping wine with a salad.
