Spanish winemaker Miguel Torres knows what he’s doing – so when I read that his Cabernet Sauvignon was discounted $3 I hopped into my wife’s Mini Cooper to get some. “Hey”, I said to myself, “Great winemaker, Cabernet Sauvignon, a great region, and it’s on sale!”. It’s still on sale all this month in Ontario.

From the LCBO Website Over the last 130 years the Miguel Torres winery has almost single-handedly built and maintained the reputation of the Penedès region, and this wine shows why. Structured with intense fruit flavours and silky tannins this full-bodied Reserva displays alluring aromas and flavours of red currants, new leather, coffee, vanilla, and a classic touch of roasted bell pepper. Exquisite with beef fajitas.
Now I have to learn how to make fajitas – the food as fun to eat as it is to say – if you try to sound like Speedy Gonzales when you say it. This wine is so good it makes Speedy Gonzales look like Regular Gonzales.
How in the world did I start off this blog with a nice bottle of wine and end up with the fastest mouse in all Mexico? This sale is loco.
