While at the store I came across this bottle of wine called Manos Negras by Vino Del Sol. I was leery of the wine because it was a screw top and typically I'm disappointed by screw tops, but the wine was on sale and sounded good so I decided to give it a try and I'm happy I did - this wine is incredible!
The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous deep color that the wine had when I poured it, such a deep red - which tells me it's going to be a nice bold wine.

Ripe red fruits, licorice, pencil lead, and a hint of mint. Complex with good grip in the mouth and a long finish.
This wine would pair great with romano cheese, blue cheese, colby cheese, semi sweet chocolate, fruit with chocolate, and tomato sauce
I paired this wine with our dinner which was St. Louis style bbq ribs, corn on the cob, and my favorite kale salad, and it paired really well in my opinion.
Hope you enjoy it!
