Wine Wednesdays - 2015 Frontón De Oro Tinto Tradicional

I hate how long it takes me to revisit certain restaurants, there's never enough dinners in a week!  We finally made it back to Casa Mono after having an amazing meal there almost three years ago!  I'm happy to report it was just as delicious as I remember.  

We went with a red wine from the Canary Islands this time around.  Frontón De Oro is located 3300 feet above sea level on terraced slopes on the island of Grand Canaria.  Made from predominantly Listán Negro grapes, aged for only 3 months in neutral American oak, the wine was bright and fresh with a nice peppery spice and dark fruit flavors.  

It was a great food wine and paired nicely with our fideos with clams and chorizo, Dorada al la plancha, and confit goat with charred avocado and pistachios.
