The Bilbo is another huge success from Marie and Fred Chauffrey of Reserve d'O. It is a big beautifully aromatic red filled with ripe plum, candied raspberries, violets and earthy minerality. Long on fruit, gorgeous acid and tannic structure and a sultry finish make this my favorite go to red for warm evenings. Never heavy but fully fleshed out, it will balance with so many foods. Staying in theme with the wine's namesake region of Bilbao though, I could devour some yummy Basque pintxos (tapas) with this yummy yummy wine.
