OT: My Suggestion for Valentine’s Day


Sierra Cantabria Garnacha 2011Garnacha tinta, known by its French name Grenache outside of Spain, is a high-yielding grape that produces vigorous wines. It is one of the most widely grown red grapes in Spain. For further information on Grenache click at Wine-Searcher.

And my choice for a Valentine’s Day romantic dinner is: Sierra Cantabria Garnacha 2011, a red wine from the D.O.C. Rioja made of 100% Grenache grapes from old vines.
