“Con pan y vino se anda el camino” [With bread and wine you can walk your road]  —   Spanish Proverb

This is a sleeper of a wine.  It a deep burgundy color with a juicy, jammy flavor.  A great sim

Hey, It looks like your thirsty. Drink me!

ple wine, one you’ll drink more than you think.  Mama Wine summed it up best, “It’s a stealthy wine, it sneaks up on you.  The first sip you think, ‘Well, I don’t know about you.’  On the second sip the wine seizes you and says ‘I’m here, drink me bitch!’ and you do as the wine commands.”  The food pairing crosses borders with Panzanella (Tuscan Bread Salad).

The alcohol content was 12%.  Synthetic capsule closure.  The grapes are 100% Mencĩa grapes sourced from 60 year old vines from the Biezo region in Spain.  Purchased for $7 USD at the San Diego Wine Co.  Other retailers are selling this up to $12.  Bottled by Exportiberia by N.R.E. 8218-LE, Carraacedelo, Spain.  Imported by Grape Expectations in Richmond, California.

The music match is “Talking to Myself” by Cousteau from the album Sirena.  For those times when you’re talking to yourself (or the wine is speaking to you.)  Hey, it happens!  No judgments here.  Cheers!
