Case Alert! Dominio de Eguren 2010 Protocolo Tinto

I spent yesterday evening tasting through some “value” wines and came out a little disappointed.  Fortunately, one wine didn’t disappoint at all…it actually far exceeded my expectations.  Protocolo 2010 Tinto was the winner of the night and I definitely plan on drinking it again!

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

This Tempranillo pours an intense, mouth-staining, ruby-red in the glass.  The nose is rich with aromas of berries and violets.  The palate is very impressive for a wine of this caliber.  Tastes of dark berries, tobacco, lots of black pepper, and a hint of black tea.  The finish is long and spicy and the price is right!  Grab a case for everyday drinking!

My Wine Rating- B+

Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair with burgers, paella, or Spanish cheeses including Manchego.
