Name Origin: Alegría means JOY in Spanish, and wait till you taste this amazingly beautiful wine – it will bring JOY to both your mouth and your life!
Coming out of a global pandemic, we most often hear people talking about searching for ways to bring back the “JOY” in their lives. Why not grab a bottle of Adrice Wines’ third vintage of beautiful 2020 Alegría and share it with your friends? Swirl a healthy pour in your glass, and you’re immediately greeted with floral notes of Rosemary and Lavender – followed by wafts of red fruit and vanilla/oak qualities so typical of a Grenache-predominant wine. In the glass, note the deep ruby color with translucent edges – indicating a medium-bodied wine that will age well. Notice a smile creeping up on your face – that’s the start of JOY we tell you!
On the palate, this fruit-forward wine dances back and forth in your mid-palate between strawberry fruit leather, and half-ripe plum – finishing with dark fruit notes brought to you by the Petit Verdot and Merlot. Behind that nice, long, dry finish – look for notes of black cherry long after you finish your swallow. Do you feel it? That’s Alegría!
Alegría pairs well with all types of food – from soft cheeses, to sushi, to pizza, to red meats. Consider a glass with a light balsamic-drizzled Caprese salad. She’ll pair beautifully with hearty dishes like cassoulet and will match well with less spicy styles of Asian cooking.
Do yourself a favor and bring home some Alegría to share with friends and family – because who doesn’t want more JOY in their lives?
