What a great recommendation and price! The lavender you picked up sounds absolutely lovely, and I have never encountered this particular aspect before in a wine. Is this a Spanish wine, by the way? I blush to ask but unless it is blatantly indicated to me, I am still learning my regions and am not sure where this would be from.

Hi, Megan; Yes! It's Spanish (you can always tell the country of origin by looking at the categories in the post). I'd recommended this wine to you a few days ago. It's a lovely wine for the price. If you find it, let me know how you like it. Cheers!


Ah yes I see that now. Great to put a label with a name! I will head over to my new favorite wine shop here in Eugene tomorrow and try to find it. They seem to have an excellent selection. I will let you know what I think!

This sounds like one that I must seek out and try. Thanks for the mouthwatering post. Perfect for a meal and a freelance writer's budget, verdad?


Meg Houston Maker

Sí, verdad, amiga. Espero que disfrute de este vino.


Being a European-based wine enthusiast I must say that posts like these thrill me, i think that American wine blogs are waaaaaaay too focused on American wines (no offence - they can be very good) but old world wines are just so different and interesting!

bookmarked this blog, and will be following you on twitter also :-)

Chris, welcome to the Table, and thanks for your note. Vastly over-generalizing, I think European wines offer something a bit more nuanced that American wines that are in the same price range; they're more food-friendly, lower alcohol, and often have more base notes.

You may be interested in exploring the many countries listed on the right under Categories. Cheers!


Fantastic! I can't wait to try this. I love Spanish wines!

Meg Houston Maker

Rose, come back and let us know how you like it.



I agree in every aspect. I have not yet sampled all american wine states, but the Californian reds I've tried have been really bold, but one-sided.

European wines usually have more terroir which makes them more interesting for people like us ;)

Meg Houston Maker

My next book is about terroir. Stay tuned.
