It's Mother's Day today in many places but the US

While here in the US, this Memorial Day week-end marks the unofficial  start of the summer and beach season (in New Jersey, we go to the shore), for many countries the last Sunday of May is Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day Maman!

As for myself, I will probably be off the blog until Tuesday, taking advantage of the holiday to take a breather.

Mesta, Tempranillo, juicy and light, a good summer table red wine

May 29
If you are looking for a simple table wine that displays cherries and a touch of spice on the finish, this medium bodied red Mesta (Tempranillo, 2006) from Bodegas Fontana in Cuenca (Castilla, Spain) will be good company. It retails at around $8.00. According to the label, 'Mestas' are gatherings of sheep herders where they sort out the stray sheep ('mestencos'). Cheers! Recent Spanish excursions: A new love!
