Quinta Sardonia 2006

We drank a fine bottle, at home, which we really enjoyed. This great Spanish wine from Castille y Leon had everything to please: power, but not too much, softness and freshness, length and harmony. Spain can make great wine thanks to their fine terroir, varietals and the new wave of winemakers inspired by the success of Peter Sisseck.
And when a bottle available at retail is even better than what I tasted en primeur, then it’s pure pleasure! (RP 92 - $75 retail)

I am also very happy for Bordeaux soccer team which has been cruising on top of the French league, and what’s good for Bordeaux soccer is good for Bordeaux wine.
