Courtney’s Wines: Viña PomalMay 29th, 2012
Had this fantastic Spanish wine with Indian food. Oh no has he gone totally bonkers or what’s up. Well the wine shop was closed and this was a stroke of luck at a Korean bodega amidst a small arsenal of eight to twelve dollar napa cabs and chards. This was the only bottle.
100% tempranillo and old world as a guillotine this wine actually didn’t do so well with the pain factor. The mild dishes couldn’t have paid for a better wine to be paired with but it amplified the vindaloo. “I’m gonna burn the hell out of your mouth”-ness a little.
Still I may try blending it just to see. Oak aged tempranillo is a beautiful thing.
