Vina Elena Pacheco Jumilla Roble 2017

Familia Pacheco has become one of our favorite Spanish producers in recent years because their wines consistently deliver tremendous intensity and depth at very modest prices. Their commitment to Organic and Sustainable agriculture and winemaking practices is undoubtedly one of the driving forces in the high quality of their wines. This week we want to introduce you to their dynamic oak aged blend of Monastrell, Cabernet, and Syrah, the 2017 Jumilla Roble. This plump and expressive effort delivers a hearty pop of ripe blackberry and blueberry accented by appealing notes of cigar humidor, caramelized brown sugar, and double dark chocolate brownies. A kiss of firm tannin keeps the wine serious while the sun baked earth on the finish serves as a constant reminder that this is the real stuff and not just another one of those nondescript, made-up California Red Blends. A hearty “House Red”, the 2017 Jumilla Roble is sure to deliver pleasurable sippling alone or with an assortment of full flavored meals from classics like roasts and burgers right on through to more exotic fare like Moroccan spiced chicken wings and white bean and chorizo chili.
Food Pairing:
Monastrell is a wonderful grape. It always produces a wealth of blue and black fruit and usually offers a nice layer of firm tannin too. That makes for great drinking and excellent food pairing because you can be sure that the wine will not fall short on flavor even if it’s up against something hearty. Of all things, I love it with some raspberry chipotle glazed chicken wings. But it’s also excellent with a cast iron skillet of queso fundido topped with crumbled chorizo and thinly sliced scallions.

Folie a Deux Dry Valley Zinfandel 2016

All this cold and snow has got us thinking about hunkering down in front of a warm fire with a nice, spicy glass of Red! And what could be better suited to the task than a big ole 92 Point Dry Creek Valley Zin? Darn near nothing! That’s what! So this week we are bringing you a killer deal on the most recent vintage of a perennial favorite here at Mile High, the 2016 Folie a Deux Dry Creek Zinfandel. This bruiser tips the scales at 15.5% abv on the label. So, yes, that’s likely to get you moving in the right direction faster than a delicate little 12% French white. But it’s not just about that. Instead higher alcohol makes a wine feel more dense, more viscous on the palate. Tack on a nice little pop of new oak to all that opulently boozy fruit and before you know it you’ve got yourself something pretty freaking good to sip! Come on! How about some warm brown sugar, pipe tobacco, and Ceylon cinnamon aromatics? Yup! You know you want that! And cherry pie filling? It’s got that too! Kirsch liqueur? Sho nuff! And you’d better believe the finish has got all that great peppery spice that makes Dry Creek Zin so darn good. Add a quarter rack of baby back ribs then you’re in heaven with a glass of this delicious Red! Please swing by the tasting bar this evening and get a little snort of this juice. It’s mighty good!
Food Pairing:
Slow cooked ribs would be perfect. That’s for sure. That said, this is some darn good Zinfandel and you really don’t need to dress up darn good Zinfandel all that much in order to enjoy it. Pizza, a burger, or even some assorted takeout taqueria goodies would work just fine too. Or, skip all that jazz and just tuck into a nice soft blanket in front of a nice warm fire so that you put it in neutral and just coasting lazily into the evening.
