Happy Hour Tempranillo and Pinot Noir

Had some girlfriends over tonight, including one in town for just a few days. EC loves Tempranillo, so I made sure to have plenty on hand for her!

Riva Rey Tempranillo 2007, Rioja, Spain - $7.50/bottle
I purchased this wine at Austin Wine merchant for $7.50/bottle. See my previous tasting notes here!

Iuvene Cosecha Tempranillo 2009, Rioja, Spain - $10/bottle
This wine is 100% Tempranillo - I purchased it at Austin Wine Merchant for $10/bottle.

Nieto Senetiner Reserva Pinot Noir 2010, Mendoza, Argentina - $8.75/bottle
This wine is 100% Pinot Noir and I purchased it at Austin Wine Merchant for $8.75/bottle.

All of these wines were nice - sorry, but no individual tasting notes tonight!

Snack included candied nuts, truffle oil popcorn, potato chips, tortilla chips and guacamole, marinated olives, crackers/Parmesan cheese/honey, Greek salad, fresh dates, pistachios, cranberry bread, peppermint bark, and dark chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds.

Yummy with everything!
