Valsotillo Crianza 2004, Wine of the Month

Wine of the Month in Taberna del Alabardero, in Washington

Taberna del Alabardero, the Spanish restaurant that Luis Lezama opened in Washington 20 years ago, has selected the wine Valsotillo Crianza 2004  as Wine of the Month. The sommelier Gustavo Iniesta has been offering this wine during all January at a special price, pointing up its deep cherry colour, clean and complex in the nose, with Rich fruity, aromas of black fruit, dry prune and minerals, and with a lot of backbone and lingering.

The wine has stayed during 12 months inAmerican oak barrels in an underground cellar from the 16th Century, and with a constant temperature of 12ºC.

Taberna del Alabardero regularly plays host to diplomats and dignataries, it is placed very near The White House, and has been called by critic Robert Shhoffner, from Washingtonian Magazine, “the best Spanish restaurant in the Country”. The New York Times greeted the restaurant´s arrival, in 1989, saying that Lezama was “finally bringing a sophisticated Spanish Kitchen to the Nation’s Capital”.
