Recently I have been obsessed with Island wines, that is wines grown on Islands, and some of my favorites come from the Canary Islands. The 7 Fuentes is a blend of Listagn Negro 90% and Tintilla 10% from vines which age up to 100 years old. It is aged in mostly cement vats to allow the pure aromatics of the fruit to express itself, with 10 % being aged in French Oak Barrels to add some roundness to the wines. This wine has aromas of dark berry fruit, dark plum, leather, and sun-dried rosemary. On the palate it is medium in body, with medium acidity and a fruit and mineral finish. This is a great partner for Lamb dishes, grilled meets, and olive and prosciutto flatbreads. Hurry to The Goat and grab a bottle before they are all gone!
