Abrazo del Toro/Tinto 2007

Heather and I have been trying to get more into Spanish wine. Mostly because we enjoy it and don't drink it enough, but partly because it seems like a sexy thing to to do.

"What did you do last night?"
"Got drunk, got a DUI and threw up on a cop."
"I think you should consider AA."
"It was off a Spanish Red."
"Never mind. That sounds super cool."

I want to have that exchange with somebody. I digress.

This wine hits you with its fruitiness at first but then eases you into a mild spicy finish. It works its way into your heart. You feel richer for the experience.

I would recommend this wine, especially to anyone just starting out with a red spanish wine like we are. It wont grab you by the balls and scream in your face, it will caress your balls and whisper sweet nothings--in Spanish.
