Baron de Barbon Rioja (2005)

Baron de Barbon Rioja 2005

It is Monday night and we are enjoying this Spanish Tempranillo very much. This will be a fairly quick post because I have some dinner preparations to monitor!

Yesterday (Sunday) I made oven-baked ribs; I started the process at 2:00 in the afternoon and took them out of the oven at 8:00 p.m. They were delicious and I will share my recipe with anyone who is interested. It’s definitely a weekend kind of meal if you work during the week.

Tonight I am making a pasta dish with fresh vegetables. I already have yellow and red peppers, leeks and fresh spinach, chopped, washed and ready. . .

The wine is very good with hints of licorice and blackberries.  It is light-to-medium bodied and dry. Lovely!

    Do you know if this wine is available for purchase in the United States? Thought I found it for sale in a small wine shop in Lake Forest, Illinois but know I can’t find it.
    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    Hi Tom & Melody – sorry, but don’t know about buying in the US, but we are just enjoying a bottle here in the UK we bought through the Sunday Times Wine Club. Maybe they can help you locate in the US (thye are very helpful)?
