Panarroz Red

Red

Spain

Southeastern Spain

Description

Looking to exploit the great potential for value in Jumilla, importer Dan Kravitz blended the first vintage of Panarroz in 2004. The maiden 2003 vintage was released to great critical acclaim, with successive vintages garnering glowing press and a loyal following in the marketplace.

Tasting Notes: This youthful, unoaked blend offers plenty of plummy, dark fruit aromas, with light spicy, peppery notes, and bold fruit and a silky texture on the palate.

Serve With: A versatile wine that will complement most meals, Panarroz will pair especially well with tapas, grilled vegetables, flank steak, seared tuna, and teriyaki-glazed salmon.
