Cameron Diaz believes empowerment involves being healthy — she leads a healthy lifestyle, only consuming foods that are sustainable, organic, and simple. While she’s been conscious about her eating habits, she didn’t always pay the same emphasis on her wine. She trusted that wines being advertised and marketed as organic would live up to that name. She believed, like most of us, that wine is simply fermented grapes.
But, she recently realized that most store-bought wines consist mostly of chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, fungicides, and other additives. She was horrified by this discovery, and so she set about investigating the matter. She learned that there’s a shocking lack of regulation and oversight in the wine industry. Manufacturers can basically slap the “organic” label on any bottle of wine, regardless of the production process.

Ninety percent of the Tempranillo grape plantings in the world are in Spain. Increasing quality and good value have propelled Spanish Tempranillo all over the world. The best-known producing region is Rioja in the north-central part of the country.
The 2011 Torres Ibéricos Crianza, Rioja is an excellent example of good value Rioja. It has glorious forward, open fruit, in the mouth (like a bowl of raspberries). A hint of oak and a pleasant finish. It will pair well with lamb or goat as well as the usual repertoire of the more popular red meats. Try it with red sauce pasta dishes as well. Continue reading →
