On the night of November 15th, the restaurant Hogaza Hogaza Tijuana hosted an exquisite tasting of Ulloa wines.
The tasting was simple, yet elegant. With three different wines from their cellar, a rose Nebbiolo was the first being served, with a strong red fruit accent. Along side a salad with fruit and cherry dressing, this was an excellent choice to start the evening.
Next they served a red wine named "Ulloa 2008". This is one of the most notable wines from thecellar, because it's a blend between Cabernet Saouvignon, Grenache and Petit Sirah. With a strong wood scent and a tad dry finish, it was the perfect compliment to the hambugers served by Hogaza Hogaza, which were dressed with a beer based sauce.
To finish off, Ulloa Winery presented a 2010 Tempranillo with a very distinctive oak scent, that wasn't overly aggresive on the palet. This wine was served along side a dessert consisting of fruit, chocolate and goat cheese that was the perfect pairing for this wine.
Ulloa wines can be found at these restarurants: Verde y Crema, Mission 19 and Hogaza Hogaza.
