Red Wine

BarĂ³n de Ley Gran Reserva Tempranillo 2001, Rioja, Doc, Spain: This is a remarkable wine -- please save me some as I intend to get a couple of cases. Matures aromas of leather, cigar box, dried herbs and black plums. It's rare to get a mature wine like this on a release, snap it up but not too much.

Sparkling Wine

Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava, Penedes, Spain: A toasty and refreshing sparkling wine at an incredibly great price! Delicious aromas and flavours of ripe pears and baked bread. Creamy layers of flavour and zippy finish make this bubbly perfect for a cocktail party or dinner companion. 216945 12% D 750 mL $14.95 Score: 89/100. December 2020. Best Value Sparkling Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
