This spicy wine is a perfect accompaniment to Eamonn's delicious Chorizo with haricot beans.

Available: exclusive to Dunnes Stores
Producer: Douglas Green
Vintage: 2006

Why this wine was chosen for this dish:  the typical dark berry fruits, clove and cinnamon spice lift the many flavours of the dish and the Chorizo particularly when cooked in red wine.
Tasting Notes: Oak maturation makes this a delicious full-bodied concentrated wine. Spice, cinnamon and cloves add a rich finish to the dark red berry fruits.
