Jeb Dunnuck calls this Dominio de Eguren Protocolo Organic Tinto a "smoking value" and we think he's hit the nail on the head. This one's a buy-by-the-case-buy, winelovers. It's a great aperitif as you're getting ready to eat, or you can have your first glass with your favorite antipasti. We like it with soppresata salami, prosciutto wrapped around homemade grissini (thin bread sticks) and chunks of Manchego cheese. One of our all-time favorite sandwiches for any time of the day is smoked brisket with homemade pickles and hearty baked beans on the side. Douse with your favorite sauce and you won't believe your taste buds. This organic Protocol is the perfect accompaniment. Sweet and tangy spare ribs finished on the grill for the perfect caramelized char are another must with this delicious Tinto. And, because it's got a medium-to-full body, it's terrific with a thick summer tomato sauce over spaghetti sprinkled with freshly grated parmesan. The secret to how good the sauce is? Lots of anchovies and garlic. Yup.

Jeb Dunnuck: "As with the other cuvées brought in by Ordonez, the 2016 Protocolo Tinto Organic is a step up over the non-organic release. Made all from Tempranillo from 30- to 70-year-old vines, this smoking value boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as terrific notes of ripe black fruits, cured meats, and peppery herbs. With an almost northern Rhône like character, medium to full-bodied richness, and shocking elegance and length at the price point, it’s a terrific red to drink over the coming 3-4 years (2018-2022)."

Winery:  "Through the careful selection of specific vineyards and controlling yields, the Eguren family delved into this project with the philosophy of creating exceptional quality, everyday wines at affordable prices. Red fruits such as raspberry complimented with vanilla and spice. Well balanced acid and tannin."
