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.
