Howdy, wine drinker.
I’m Jacob from I Want You to Drink More Wine.
In today’s video, I’ll be sharing an honest wine review and suggesting a pairing that complements this wine perfectly.
Let’s go ahead and check out our wine.
Bodegas Palacio Glorioso Rioja Reserva 2011
Today we’ve got a Glorioso.
This is a Tempranillo-based wine out of Rioja, Spain.
This would be a 2011.
One of my favorite grapes, Tempranillo–medium-body wine you’re looking at.
I think it’s going to go phenomenal with the pairing you might have already figured out we’re doing today.
Alec Bradley American Classic Toro
We’ve got a nice cigar, medium-boded cigar.
This is an Alec Bradley American Classic Toro.
This is going to be a medium-bodied cigar.
Cigar Insider rates it 88 point.
You’re not going to believe how much the cigar is–$5.19.
I think it’s going to go super smooth with the pairing that we’ve got for you today.
Let’s go ahead, check out this wine, see how this pairing goes, give it a try.
And so I’ve got a nice glass of the Glorioso.
Got it in my left hand.
Let me switch it over.
It’s a little difficult to drink like that.
So it’s a nice wine, not very robust, pleasant, smooth, simple, not much complexity to it.
But it’s a simple, smooth, medium-bodied wine.
Let’s see how it goes with this cigar–smooth cigar, as I mentioned.
Oh, yeah, easy pair, I highly recommend it.
If you’re going to try this cigar, the Alec Bradley American Classic Toro, 88 points on Cigar Insider, $5.19.
And if you’re going to try this wine,
Bodegas Palacio Glorioso Rioja Reserva, 2011 from Rioja, Spain.
This is going to be 3.7 on the Vivino.
I’d kick it up with this pairing.
But 3.7, solid rating, average price $19.99.
Under $25, about $25, you can get a nice wine-good cigar pairing.
Check it out.
Let me know what you think.
And until our next video, take care.
