BBQ Glazed Salmon, Mock Spinach Soufflés, and ElviWines Classico
This past evening, my in-laws whipped up a really awesome dinner. It consisted of a Sweet and Sour glazed BBQ Salmon, along with a Quick Spinach Soufflés, and a lovely assortment of fresh vegetables. The evening was really quite nice, and well enjoyed by all. My wife’s uncle joined us and brought along a lovely bottle of Elvi Wines Classico Ribera del Jucar, which is mevushal and quite tasty. This is not a wine that will blow you away, but it is still a wine that is quite a nice quaffer.
Thanks to Mom and Dad, and Reuben for a lovely evening. The wine note follows below:
2008 Elvi Wines Classico, Ribera del Jucar – Score: B+
The nose on this garnet colored wine, which is a blended wine of 88% Tempranillo and 12% Merlot, is ripe with plum, cherry, raspberry, and spice. The mouth of this medium bodied wine is soft with raspberry, cherry, and plum. The mid palate is bright with core acidity and a hint of coffee. The finish is medium long with more acid, soft tannins, coffee, and pepper/spice. This is a real nice wine that is a solid quaffer for almost anyone and mevushal to boot. By the way, this is the only mevushal wine from this awesome Spanish Kosher Winery, one of my favorites out there.
