2012 Paniza Reserva ($7)
This was a recent find. And, in true fashion for a Behind the Cork™ wine feature, it’s a great value!
This is blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Grenache. And it’s a tasty blend.
The Tempranillo and Cab give this blend some definite tannin structure while the touch of Grenache helps to smooth it out a bit.
I paired it with some English Cheddar and really enjoyed. At $7, it’s hard to beat for a tasty red wine.
Look for it!
