A Catalunyan Red is a Good Pairing with Sunday Roast Lamb

We actually had a traditional Sunday lunch for a change.  Roast Lamb with all the trimmings, although we usually pass on the mint sauce because it kills the flavour of dry wines completely.  We tried a bottle of Don Elias Gran Reserva 2000 a Catalunyan red from the Sunday Times Wine Club.  It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Garnacha, matured in oak for three years before bottling.  This was a lovely full flavoured wine.  It was soft, with some spiciness in the plum and blackcurrant fruit.  Definitely on a par with a decent Rioja and we thought just as good with Roast Lamb.
