2004 Aalto: Good, smooth.

dec. 30, 2009: rob williamson, greg's cousin, drove in for a 5-day stay on and around our annual new year's eve party. he brought this tempranillo that victoria paired with a rack of lamb seasoned with crushed garlic, salt, olive oil, thyme and rosemary. she also prepared a macaroni dish seasoned with fresh sage bread crumbs via www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Creamy-Macaroni-with-Sage-100638, and some carrots.

this spaniard was gentle, round and yet firm at the same time. without opening up too much, it easily held its own against the wild gameyness of the lamb. beauty and the beast, that sort of thing. we easily drank the whole bottle. 15 percent alcohol. thanks rob!
