September’s wine club soiree featured seven wines from Spain and a variety of Tapas to pair with.  Tapa’s and wine is the perfect way to spend a Thursday night even in light of the big football game on.  Vino Etcetera was packed with people all enjoying excellent wines, delicious tapas and fantastic company. The lineup started with a dry sparkling Brut Cava and then followed with a light white blend of Viura and Macabeo.  The lighter reds we enjoyed were two different styles of Garnacha followed by Mencia (Cabernet Franc) and the big hit of the night was the Old Vine 2002 Tempranillo Gran Reserva.  While our guests were sipping on the elegant wines, they were encouraged to squeeze their halves of ripe, juicy tomatoes into a piece of soft baguette and a smear of fresh minced garlic topped off with fresh cucumber, red onion or tuna.  The evening finished off with a Semi-Seco Cava (off dry) paired with a piece of milk chocolate sea salt from Indulgence Chocolatiers and a slice of fresh peach.
