- Cara Bassa Tempranillo – Made from Spain’s most prolific grape, this 100% tempranillo produces a medium bodied red tasting of berries and herbs with a nice dry finish.
- Promesa Rioja Reserva – A red blend (of tempranillo and grenache) from the famous Rioja region, this reserve is aged several years in light oak to produce a rich, velvety mouthful tasting of ripe berries, plums, and spices.
- Castano Solanera—Another great red blend from Spain combining monastrell (mourvedre), cabernet sauvignon, and grenache, this wine received a whopping 94 points from Robert Parker. The result? A deep red tasting of raspberries and cherries with a wonderfully spicy balance of cloves and cinnamon.
