Bodegas Conde 'Vivir, Vivir', 2007
The 2007 Vivir, Vivir is 100% Tempranillo sourced from old vines in La Horra in the Ribera del Duero of Spain. This wine has a lovely ruby-red color and displays an elegant nose of blackberry, cherry and stone. This is a medium bodied wine that is a modern style with rich berry flavors that are pleasantly balanced with secondary flavors of mineral and herbs. Very smooth and fleshy in the mouth with moderate tannins and acidity and no harsh edges. This is a straight-forward Tempranillo that will pair well with any summer picnic. We served the "Vivir, Virir" chilled, with some grilled chicken tacos and wood-charred green beans….yummy! We found this “Summer-sipper” at Top Foods, in Bellevue, for about $10.
