This week wine is the Quinta Quietud Toro 2006. My boyfriend’s dad made us dinner the other night and his dad is also a big fan of wine. He took lessons on wine on how to smell it, taste it, and review it. Made me realized I need to take some lessons too… But anyways, he bought this fine wine and it’s was simply amazing. A strong full bodied wine exploding with taste. This elegant wine can be drank with a strong flavored meal.
