So You’ve Got A…Tempranillo

Tempranillo is indigenous to Spain and, like many other wines, can range from lighter to fuller flavors of spice, tobacco, and cherry.

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.

The Bottle King and Vineyard Market staffs would be more than happy to help you pick out a delicious pairing, so feel free to ask for their advice!
