A Red Rioja is an Acceptable Match with a Moussaka

We ate the remainder of the Delia Moussaka from the previous evening.  We decided to keep with a medium-bodied red, but switched to a bottle of Campo Viejo Rioja Crianza 2008 from Costco.  This is a reliable, versatile food wine and we tasted red fruits with strawberries and cherries to the fore.  We also enjoyed the spicy, vanilla, savoury finish that the Moussaka accentuated.  However, we are coming to the conclusion that Moussakas are a challenge to pair well with wine.
