Spanish Table Seattle & Paris Grocery Newsletter
January 8, 2010
Our Spanish Table brand Lemon stuffed olives arrived today! A perennial customer favorite, the buttery flavor of the Manzanilla olive is a perfect foil for the piquant lemon flavor. Serve them at a tapas party and you’ll be amazed how quickly they disappear. Or put one in a martini to take it up a notch!
SPANISH TABLE VALUE WINES TO KICK OFF THE NEW YEAR
2007 Vivir, Vivir Ribera del Duero ($9.99) “The 2007 Vivir, vivir is 100% Tempranillo sourced from 20- to 60-year-old vines in La Horra. Dark ruby-colored, it features racy aromatics of mineral, spice box, black cherry and blackberry. Silky on the palate with no hard edges, this tasty wine will provide pleasure over the next three years. The wines [El Arte de Vivir and Vivir, vivir] from Bodegas J.C. Conde are sensational values from Ribera del Duero.” 90 points Wine Advocate
2007 El Arte de Vivir, Ribera del Duero ($16.99) “The 2007 El Arte de Vivir is also 100% Tempranillo sourced from 60- to 80-year-old vines. It was aged for six months in French and American oak. It s more substantial and structured than the Vivir, vivir cuvee with layers of fleshy fruit, excellent concentration, and 1-2 years of aging potential. The finish is lengthy and sweet. Drink this pleasure-bent wine over the next six years.” 91 points Wine Advocate
2006 Don Tiburcio, Mendoza ($9.99) A blend of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon with a smattering of Petit Verdot and Merlot, this full-bodied red is fresh and lush. Aged 10 months in French oak casks, Don Tiburcio has aromas of mature red fruits and a touch of chocolate vanilla. Intense and fruity, with soft tannins, it has an impressive and persistent finish. Recommended!
Our new shop features French cheeses and wine, and other foods with a French mood. It’s located 1/4 of a block south of Spanish Table at 1418 Western Avenue.
