Food Pairings for Bodegas Y Viñedos Labastida Manuel Quintano Reserva
Quintano’s style is more Internationalist than traditionalist; the wine shows very intense and ripe fruit, and there are lots of new barrel smells and flavors. Blackberry, black plums, even some prunes join in with vanilla and marshmallow for a warm and dense drink. The wine is still very much in its evolution and needs more time.
