The first wine is from the legendary Wine Lovers Page, and is noted in their 30 second wine advisor section. This week they highlighted a tempranillo from Tierra de Castilla, called: Bodegas Tikalo 2004 “Rubens”. Giving it a thumbs up, they recommend that others seek out small treasures from Spain’s lesser-known regions. Read their Spanish wine tasting note here.
The second wine is from a place that, when I think of it, Spanish wine would never come to my mind, Honolulu. Todd Ashline, the manager and sommelier of [Chef Mavro restaurant->http://www.chefmarvo.com], has a nice article about Spanish wine and the importer Jorge Ordonez.
