On Monday and Tuesday, I took a bottle of 2009 Terrenal Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009, from Vecla Spain, that I picked up for $6 at Trader Joes. It started off powerfully, with lots of loud tannins on the attack, and a long finish on the tongue. I had some spicy Fresh & Easy turkey chili with it that complimented it well, but the 2nd day.... wow... it didn't mellow at all. I think it actually got More Aggressive, with More Bite.
This was unexpected and unusual. Most of the time, the 2nd day after opening a powerful red, tends to soothe it somewhat as it breathes. The Terrenal had the opposite effect.
If you like Fitou, you may enjoy this Spanish Cab as well.
