Hardened Heart / WeeksEnd wine

Theres an expression used "a stiff necked people". Being stubourn as all traits when used in the proper context can be usefull and elevating.However when being stubourn is bringing us down its only antidote is humility.
Have a good one; H

Harry, I always have a problem balancing humility and stubbornness in my own life. :)

We enjoyed this Spanish red recently ...

Torres 2013 "Altos Ibéricos" Rioja Crianza ($14.99)
"Crianza" signals an oak-aged Rioja, and this model, 100 percent Tempranillo, spends a full year in barrel. Dark garnet with a bronze edge, it offers tart cherries on the nose and palate, opening up to a dark earthy minerality. Very dry, very acidic, 13.5% alcohol claimed; there's an edge of soft, palatable tannins in the finish. It should be a versatile table wine for carnivores, but it seems particularly well suited for grilled chicken. It would also go well with roast vegetables or bean-and-cheese entrees.
