Best Pizza Wine, Ever.



Tried the Finca Villacreces 2003, Ribera del Duero, Spain (Tempranillo blend: 86% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot. ) 14% alcohol... paired with... Pizza Hut pizza... (yeah, I know), but it was Thin Crust, and the toppings were: Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Jalapeno.




Could the Villacreces stand up to it?... Hell yeah!




Blueberries on the nose...


In fact, it was like little men with leather gloves were stuffing blueberries up my nose. LOTS and lots of blueberries. $29.99 was the damage. Small price to pay.




BEST PIZZA WINE, EVER!!!!!!! Hands down.... Is all I can say.






Powerful, yet SMOOTH.




Mouthfeel: This dark-purple concoction was all about the berry, and enchanting my mouth. It is delicious. What a discovery!
I love this wine, and plan on getting more of it.




Pedigree: Finca Villacreces is on great real estate. Right next door to Vega Sicilia. Not too shabby. If you are into Parker, the 2004 Villacreces got a 95. The year 2003 was not rated, but I think it's the bomb.

I confess that sometimes this combination of Pizza and a TOP wine is really exciting!

P.S. Promising wine, if the vineyards are next to Vega S.
