Rugby Rugged Rioja

Does anyone have spare tickets to the Led Zeppelin concert? Its killing me that they’re doing so few shows… Just wondering.

willy-willy1.jpgAnyhow – I need to introduce some of you to the Conde Alegre 2006 : this beauty of a Spaniard smacks of Virginia chewing tobacco, prosciutto and has a sweet dried-fruit essence, like dried dates.

Also, just to settle the score for any Americans who wish to order this in Europe, the pronunciation is re-ock-a and not ri-oh-ha.

Though the Spaniards may not show much handling on the Rugby field, this gives amazing play on on the palate.
