WHAT: Beso de Vino Seleccion (red) Rating: NNN
WHERE: Cariñena, Spain
WHY: A solid performer at a very good price. Lots of blueberry in the bouquet and continued ripe fruit on the palate, but with nervy acidity, a touch of tannins and a strong finish. And the label has a cartoon of a bull with really big balls. Speaking of pairing, braised short ribs or a tomato-based bean stew would be a good match with this wine.
PRICE: 750 ml/$9.85
AVAILABILITY: At most liquor stores (product #231787)
