Hoya de Cadenas Reserva Tempranillo 2006, Utiel-Requena, Spain - $10

This 100% Tempranillo by Vicente Gandia is a perennial favorite of mine. It's usually easy-drinking and accessible, and at $10/bottle at Whole Foods, it's a great everyday value. Wine Spectator has named it a Best Buy and it has also won a number of international wine awards.

Aroma - dark fruit, a little wood
Taste - dark fruit, a little wood, tobacco, dry, soft to moderate tannins

Still like this wine a lot!
