Tempranillo and Mahon

WEEKEND WINE & CHEESE RECOMMENDATION

Take a break in Spanish style this weekend with a glass of Tempranillo and a wedge of Mahon!

Though red Tempranillo production originated in Spain, there are popular New World varieties from Argentina and Chile. These traditionally young wines have a shorter life on the vine. Each glass teases the palate with a variety of flavors ranging from tobacco and vanilla to berries and plum.

Mahon is a stellar semi-firm, cow's milk cheese that hails from the island of Menorca. It's got a bit of a bite with a sharp lemon-ey, salty flavors. This cheese crumbles like an aged cheddar and goes best with a simple cracker that won't compete for your attention.

Close your eyes and you can almost smell the salty, Mediterranean breeze as you're dazzled by Tempranillo and Mahon.
