Wine of the Week: Martin Berdugo Crianza 2010

While visiting Ireland last week I got to visit my favorite Galway wine bar twice. Sheridan’s is a must-visit for the wine lover; it’s the perfect spot for reading magazines and sipping wine alone, or devouring a cheese plate and a beautiful bottle of wine, as I did with my sister-in-law two days in a row. It was so lovely.

Martín Berdugo Crianza 2010 Sheridan’s always helps me to discover new favorite wines, and this weekend I fell in love with this Spanish red wine, Martín Berdugo Crianza 2010.  Once I smelled this wine, I knew we needed a full bottle. It reminded me of a Syrah, with its deep, dark intense fruit notes mixed with rich cocoa and a little bit of spice. This wine is velvety, lush, warming, and really just delicious. It was perfect on a very chilly Galway afternoon, with local Irish cheeses and family. We tend to buy a lot of California wines, so when I discover a wine from a region that I don’t always look to.

This wine would be a really wonderful addition to a holiday party, and I hope to find a bottle under the tree.
