'Not a recipe, etc., so I didn't post there. I recently posted about an elderly attorney, that I considered a friend, that was killed violently by his own mentally ill son. We sold our business, they sold their practice, and we lost touch. His obit stated that he loved to cook wild game for his friends, paired with his choice of excellent Spanish wine. I've always thought a Spanish went well with game, but I really don't know much about them. Any Spanish wine aficionados/hunters on here? Any suggestions for a really good Spanish red would be appreciated. I need to up my game cooking and "pairing" cred.

For sherry, González Byass Sherry, aka Tio Pepe winery in Jerez.

In southern Spain there were hundreds of wineries in the early 60's, all unique in their own ways, but still similar. The climate and area is similar to the Texas Hill Country, probably the reason there are so many wineries in Texas. Pick a medium priced wine and you cannot go wrong, but our choice would be a Texas wine, and that would be whatever the latest bottle we happen to buy.

I think the best way to pair a wine is to try it. The usual standards are for snobs, and while you won’t always get it right, you never know until you try.

Try Fall Creek Vineyards Tempranillo Salt Lick Vineyards. Many of the great wines of Spain are made from the Tempranillo grape which is ideally suited for our Texas climate.

Can't help with the Spanish angle but I had this bottle over the weekend. *Really* good.

I like Spanish Rioja's. Might sound strange. If you have a Costco membership look for the Kirkland Rioja, it's like $8-10 and doesn't last long when they get it in.
