A nice place to start when pairing a Tempranillo is to go with Spanish cheeses. Manchegos, like Tempranillo, can range in age and flavor. Try a young Manchego with a lighter Tempranillo. Other sheep’s milk cheeses pair well with Tempranillo also, as they blend nicely with the spicy flavors of the wine. While washed-rind, pungent cheeses can pair well, it is advised to avoid blue cheeses.
