A Spanish Red Goes Very Well with a French Lamb & Tomato Stew

We finished off the French Lamb & Tomato Stew (see Friday 31st December post).  I said then we would go for a Spanish Red and we chose Don Elias Gran Reserva de La Familia 2000 a Catalunyan red from Sunday Times Wine Club.  It’s a blend from Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Garnacha.  Smooth forest fruit flavours and, according to the Wine Club, with notes of tobacco and leather.  A superb match with the lamb and the powerful fruity and spicy flavours in the wine were accentuated.
