Bold red wines command notice. Very full, dark fruits like blackberry are their signature, as well as firm tannins. Earth, coffee, tobacco, and black pepper tones help these wines stand out from the crowd.

Food Pairing and Preparation: These original red meat wines call for steak, lamb, venison, buffalo or goat especially with grilling or charring. Savory soups, stews, and meat pies. Roasts and gamier fowl like duck. Strong flavored cured meats and hard, flavorful cheeses. Sauces of tomato, pepper, mushrooms and black truffle along with anything barbequed add context. Even dark chocolate will be enhanced by these wines.

  • Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico, “Gordo” ORGANIC

  • In Spanish, we’re taught that along with meaning “fat, thick, and stout,” gordo is a term that carries very loving, endearing qualities; and never have we come across a wine that captures so many levels of a word’s meaning!  From south-east Spain, the Yecla is a region that produces exceptional wine but gets little attention.  Perfumed with black raspberry and bitter cherries mixed with notes of leather, cocoa, tannins that grip and grow, and a slightly lingering sweetness on this finish, this wine has heft!  Enjoy this with blue cheese, spicy chili, and hot wings! 

    SIZE: 750 ML

    VARIETY: 70% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

    REGION: Yecla, Spain
