Of grapes and goiters.

Dear Torby and Sandra,

I am very sorry for not calling you directly, but I feel it is easier to express myself using the written word. So I hope you won't mind my emailing you to explain my behavior at your recent dinner party.

Are you familiar with a condition called "Alien Hand Syndrome?" It's a rare affliction that causes a person's hand to move independent of their thoughts or neurological commands. It is definitely not as amusing as it sounds. I have long suffered from this condition, although in recent months I have been able to control it with some ground-breaking puppet therapy.

Anyway, you may recall during the course of the evening The Duchess was being a bit coquettish with me. Truth be told, I wasn't particularly interested in her advances. The Duchess is a lovely woman, but her goiter is simply too cumbersome. However, my blasted Alien Hand (righty) saw fit to reach forth and caress the goiter. Certainly I feel terrible about this. I like to think of myself as a gentleman and I'd never go for the goiter so quickly.

I'm sure you remember what happened next. The shouting. The hounds. The filthy carpet. In the hullabaloo all I could think was, "GET OUT OF TORBY AND SANDRA'S!"

And, yes, as I made my escape, my darned Alien Hand may have reached out and grabbed the Iberian Remix Tempranillo sitting in your scullery.

It has been a long weekend for us all. I am sure I cannot apologize enough for all this terrible behavior. I hope we can meet again soon. And do pass along my regards to the Duchess. Incidentally, the Iberian Remix was delectable.

Features

2009 Iberian Remix Tempranillo 750ml 5-Pack

This Tempranillo has a medium body, supple plum and blackberry fruit with roasted tomato and black olive notes. It was created to enjoy with Tapas styled dishes from vegetables to roasted meats.

The wines of Iberian Remix were developed out of the desire to showcase the untapped potential of indigenous Spanish grapes in American viticulture. The United States has a long history with French and Italian grapes, but has overlooked Spain, the world’s third largest wine producer.

Tempranillo, the pre-eminent red grape of Spain that developed throughout much of the Spanish countryside is used for this American “Remix”. In its homeland, it is a natural partner for the abundant Mediterranean produce and meat of the land. You see these wines labeled as Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Toro from Spain or Tinta Roriz from Portugal.

The blending of Tempranillo with Garnacha and Cariñena is a natural one with their complementary red fruit and juicy texture. You will not see Iberian Remix Tempranillo blended with dominant and intrusive Cabernet or Syrah.  Iberian Remix Tempranillo is a “Sommeliers’ Favorite” because it is a soft, juicy, spicy red that harmonizes with hot spice, strong herbs or gamey dishes with ease. Smoked or cured meats seem to have a particular affinity, as well as roasted tomatoes and peppers.
