What we’re drinking: A Spanish red

Looking for a good wine that won’t break the bank? We’ve got a recommendation for a Spanish red for dinner tonight.
Blending has always been a tradition for Freixenet, a long time Spanish producer of cava (sparkling wines). They also have several other bodegas in their portfolio, one being Rene Barbier located in Catalunya.
This everyday red is a brilliant red color with aromas and flavors of berries, licorice and a hint of vanilla. Lots of upfront fruit, medium bodied with a smooth finish will sure to please both your palate and your wallet. Under $8.
