Michonne – 2016 Spanish Tempranillo

Wielding a samurai sword and a whole lot of bad-ass attitude, Michonne deserves a bold blend. She survived on her own for some time, with two walkers chained to her as protection. As one of the more complex characters on the show, Michonne often shows layers of courage and fear with love and anger. She’s proven to be a woman who can stand on her own, despite being linked to the leading man of the series, Rick.

A 2016 Spanish Tempranillo is a delicious and smart choice to honor her character. The detail for the blend says it is able to “slice to your very core with its focused acidity and pure, concentrated flavors of cherry and plum. Despite the driven, dominating fruit shown on the palate, however, the finish is warm, charming and pleasant, easily inviting you back for another sip.”

Suggested food pairing: Tapas with jambon and chorizo mixed with olives, mushrooms, and Spanish cheeses

Suggested episode: The fourth season’s mid-season finale “Too Far Gone” is a memorable one for Michonne. It features the epic scene when she finally takes out The Governor. This episode also happens to features the most character deaths, including The Governor killing Hershel in front of Maggie and the rest of the group. It is one of the most devastating scenes by far for the series. As walkers take over the prison, Michonne saves Rick from being strangled by The Governor and kills him with a stab through the chest. This episode is brutal, for sure, hence the need for many, many snacks. But it is also one of the most memorable scenes for Michonne, and for that we applaud it.
