Looking to try a new red? Stop by Plum Market in Bloomfield Twp. and pick up one of our favorite Spanish reds.  We currently have Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez Tinto Pesquera Crianza 2008 | Plum Price: $24.97.  Pesquera comes from the Ribera del Duero region of Spain and is comprised of 100% Tempranillo from both benchland and high elevation vineyards.

It’s aged in a combination of both French and American oak and has notes of raspberry, strawberry, soy, and baking spices with a gentle touch of vanilla.  It’s medium to full-bodied with moderate tannins and potential to age for another 10 years or so.  Try it with a roasted leg of lamb with a pomegranate molasses rub.
