Wine - 2012 Tempranillo I Buy Now
Pairing - BBQ Sauce
Why - A sauce can be the bridge between food and wine, plus BBQ sauce is good on just about anything. Our Tempranillo is a little smokey with essence of stewed tomato. Already sounds like BBQ sauce, right? Fire up the grill or just dip saltine crackers into this sweet and tangy sauce Justin did as a kid.
Tempranillo is a very underrated BBQ and steak wine. Its rustic, earthy, and lively with a little help from Graciano. From BBQ chicken to ribeye, Tempranillo does the job!
