The Chocolate/Tempranillo Experiment

I have a particular love affair taking place with Tempranillo at the moment. Okay, so maybe I actually have a love affair taking place with many food and winelovelies right now, but will get to those later on. :)I was first struck by Cupid’s arrow when I tasted the Tempranillo from Famila Gascon, 2008.
