"This red — from high-altitude, terraced vineyards in the Canary Islands, made from listán negro grapes — is big and ripe, perfumed with aromas of flowers and red fruits. It’s lightly tannic and well balanced, and would be delicious with a juicy leg of lamb, or any other elemental red meat dishes." ~ EA
"Weeknights are a state of mind. More accurately, they are a state of fatigue. Whether it’s a Tuesday or a Saturday, sometimes all you want is an uninterrupted stretch of peace and quiet, maybe some leftovers and a chance to wear out the Netflix subscription. That, and a couple of glasses of decent wine.
Wine with dinner is an easy win, especially with a bottle that is not only good enough to pique your interest and reward your attention, but one that is also inexpensive, without requirements for concentration or close observation.
Plenty of bottles can fulfill that mission. The crucial points are to have a few of these wines on hand at all times, and not to confuse them with inexpensive, processed big brands that can be bought without thought because they are ubiquitous." ~ EA, NYT

In 1977, D. Antonio Ramírez bought a small piece of land in the hills of La Lechuza (a small town on the island of Gran Canaria) known locally as "El Frontón", where he planted some vegetables and vines for the family's needs. In 1999 his two sons, Pedro and Antonio, decided to bottle some wine to sell locally. The vineyards are high-elevation– many above 1,000 meters– and in many cases on terraced slopes.
