Take your taste buds on an inspired trip to Spain with the return of one of Woodblock’s much-anticipated seasonal specialties: grilled octopus served with harissa-spiced chorizo over potato and kale, with a romesco and cilantro sauce. The harissa of the chorizo, along with the quick char of a grill, adds a complex and pleasant smoky-spiciness to the dish, giving it a robust flavor that needs an equally vibrant wine. Woodblock recommends pairing the dish with a Spanish Herminia Tempranillo 2017 from Rioja, a bright cherry, fruit-forward wine, rounded out with a hint of vanilla. Bold for bold, it’s a memorable combination of food and drink to intrigue your appetite and give yourself a virtual trip outside the norm.
