I just can’t contain myself when I find great “Every Day” wines for a bargain!
1. Category: Vibrant
2. Wine Type: Blend Tempranillo (80%), Granacha (5%), Mazuelo (5%) and Graciano
3. Country: Rioja, Spain
4. Price: $6.99
5. Notes: Yet another find that has Rioja written all over it. This blend called Antaño has plenty of character without the attitude. You’ll find vibrant rich black cherry flavors finished with vanilla notes with every sip. Can be enjoyed with pasta or chicken dish. At $6.99 a bottle, I’m keeping a few in my stash.

When was the last time you found lust in a bottle? Alto Moncayo 2006 has made my taste buds sing with its seductive flavors of blackberries, nutmeg, and soft tones of lavender. This wine is out to please you with no regrets.

Spending the last few months in Spain and rediscovering Granacha has made me fall in love all over again. Alto Moncayo Veraton is one of my latest finds that I need to share with the world. This smokey, earthy, oh so sexy wine has smooth tannins that are highlighted with hints of cocoa. This bottle will complimented just about any meal.
