Let’s see, what term should I use to describe this wine? I think I’ll go with “WOW!” Great restaurant wine because it is beautiful from the minute the cork pops.

2009 – Rioja, Spain $11 — Rating 86

An easy drinking wine with enough going on to get your attention. The blend is 60% Garnacha, 30% Viura, and 10% Tempranillo. Great on a sunny summer afternoon.
