Just when I return from Washington State, I am shown a wine that for years, I have not been able to get, because of one of those archaic exclusivity agreements, and they (the distributors carrying this brand) tell me it is going national. Cool, I grin silently inward as they pour me the Panarroz Red 2007 from Jumilla. A bright blend of Monastrell (Mourvedre), Garnacha and Syrah, this 100% tank-fermented red is all about bright red and black fruit aromas and flavors, hints of white and black pepper and even some floral notes that give you plenty of acidity to lend itself to all your everyday meals.
Give this wine a go and join me in welcoming the importer of this particular wine into the 21st Century!
