THE CONTINUATION OF MY SO-FAR-BEHIND-IN-MY-WORK FILES CONTINUES: THE NEW VINTAGE OF A NEW FAVORITE

One of my favorite value reds right now is the Rio Madre Graciano Rioja 2011 (Grade=Outstanding).  This 100% Graciano, brought to you by the mad genius of Jorge Ordonez, is made by Bodegas y Vinedos Ilurce.  Medium-bodied with loads of red fruits and white spices, it is almost tailor-made for this time of year, revealing hints of peppermint beneath its juicy veneer of red currant paste, roasted red cherries and touches of mulberry pie.  Clocking in under $10, this wine is a steal.
