I have been wanting to write about this wine for a while now. It is one of the best selling vinos on our Whole Foods Market Top 10 Fall program. OENOPHILOGICAL beat me to the punch and I am glad he did. I do not think I could have done a better job.
This wine not only helped me discover the Navarra region of Spain but also the bargain of the season. Deliciously fruit forward and with quite the growing fan base at our Whole Foods Market North Miami store.
So without further ado, I introduce you to Navarra’s Tablao and OENOPHILOGICAL. Salud!

Why? Because the name on this wine, Tablao, is a word used to denote a flamenco show, a flamenco venue, or the dance floor on which flamenco is performed. I can hear those heels rat-a-tat-tatting now!
Quite an interesting choice of names for a wine label, don’t you think? It certainly promises a lot! Think of all the things that flamenco conjures in the imagination. Flamenco is exciting, dynamic, vibrant, passionate, and sensual! It exudes a feeling of controlled chaos – the musicians, singers and dancers playing on the edge of rhythmic and emotional anarchy. Whew! That’s a lot to live up to. Does the wine do the name justice? Well …
