Joe’s Pick: Bodegas Cepa 21 Tempranillo ‘Hito” 2016

Body: Medium (+)
Fruit: forest fruit, red currants 
Food Pairings: beef, lamb
Organic: noBodegas Cepas 21 is 100% Tempranillo from Spain’s northern plateau, where it’s known to produce concentrated reds with round, pure fruit.  Aged just 8 months in French oak, this wine is meant to easily accompany food and just be overall approachable and drinkable.

A pet-project from a renowned producer in the region, Hito shows the benefits of modern winemaking from the region- it’s an overachiever in the glass. It drinks  perfectly with slow-cooked and heavily-seasoned secondary cuts of beef or, it’s native pairing, lamb.
