Basque Wines at Treasure Valley Wine Society


10Sept2014_1_TVWS-Basque-Wines_2012-Serres TempranilloSuch a great evening – one of the best this year. Chef Jake out did himself tonight with the menu. He and his Staff are to be commended. Everything went so very well with the wines that were presented by Tara and Tony Eiguren, Owners of the The Basque Market in downtown Boise. All around super job by everyone and good work by Craig Luttig who organized this tasting. The wine pictured here was one of the best for the evening, a 2012 Serres Tempranillo. “… Aromas of fresh, red and black fruit, liquorice and floral notes with a taste that is fresh, fruity with a bit of intensity.” [The Basque Market] This was a good party and I think all 28 people who were there enjoyed themselves and learned something new. Enjoy these photos and Left-Click any of them to see the photo enlarged. Cheers!

The Basque Market in Boise. Go in and visit the market. Have some tapas and some wine. Take a cooking class. Did you know that Boise has one of the highest concentrations of Basque outside of Spain?
