Bodegas Abanico Hazaña Viñas Viejas 2014 Rioja Cosecha (Spain)

Bought • Wine & Cheese Place, 7435 Forsyth Boulevard, in May for $11.99

Description • This deeply flavored red received 92 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, which called the wine “simply one of the greatest values in Rioja that money can buy.” A blend of 85 percent tempranillo and 15 percent graciano, this is an intense medium- to full-bodied red that tastes of dark fruit, tobacco and vanilla from oak aging. The wine’s spiciness increases as it opens. It would go well with grilled beef.
