Wonderful (Organic) Wine for Holiday Gatherings

PASO A PASO TEMPRANILLO -Made with Organically Grown Grapes
.
With jazz playing on the stereo and your feet up on the couch, the huge flavor in this floral, deeply colored Tempranillo keeps the stories and laughs going for hours. When everyone gets hungry, serve it with slices of chorizo and Le Gruyère cheese.
.
I found this info via Whole Foods top ten wines and decided to give it a try. It turned out to be a wonderful wine - it's nice to find a good Tempranillo and the quality of this wine, for the price, is quite high.

Region:Spain, Castile-La Mancha
Grape:Tempranillo
Type:Red Wine

.
What Whole Foods has to say: From sandy soils in the prized terroir of La Mancha, Spain comes this powerful example of Tempranillo. Six months of aging in French oak barrels results in its deep opaque color and ripe plum and toffee aromas, perfect for drinking with hearty winter stews or bring out the creaminess in P'tit Basque cheese for an intense flavor experience.

Recipe pairing: Roasted Beef Tenderloin

I'm not a drinker, but I saw "hearty winter stews" in the Whole Foods quote and now I need to make a beeline for their meat dept. (the only place I'll buy meat) to get some of their stew meat! Oh YUM :)
