ParesPenedes, Spain

PRESS:
90 Points, International Wine Cellar
Saturated ruby. Graphite, cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla on the nose, with a sexy floral quality coming up with air. On the palate, the wine’s sweet red and dark fruit flavors are at once juicy, precise and seamless. The cherry and floral notes echo on the very sweet finish. This is delicious now. (Sept/Oct 2010)

Wine Of The Week – Pares Balta Mas Elena 2007

September 21, 2011 12:15 pm - Posted by Jody in Drink

Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

Burgundy, France

TASTING NOTE:

The nose offers aromas of vanilla, apples and white peach. Bone dry, medium bodied and deliciously consistent with the nose. Beautifully balanced with bright acidity and a lovely finish. Enjoy with grilled fish or chicken in a cream sauce. (Add a splash of the wine to the cream sauce to give it a little extra zing.)
