Paso A Paso 2006 Jorge Ordoñez Selections

© 2008 photo by Dave Trieger

Previously known as Mano a Mano, this deep ruby red wine is slightly amber around the edges, and is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes from the La Mancha region of Spain. It's aged in oak for 6 months and has slightly heavier than medium body. At first impression there are the aromas of warm fresh coffee in the morning, chocolate and ripe red fruits, then on the palate a dance of cinnamon and cherry with tannins that have some power, but not too much, and good balance. The 13.5% alcohol makes it formidable and it goes for about $11. Found this at The Wine Room of Forest Hills.

Love me some dat Paso a Paso. You gotta come in a check out their verdejo. It's beautiful and bracing and with a similar trippy label. Some times I find myself staring at it and zoning out. ;)
