WHAT: Castillo Labastida Reserva (red) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Rioja, Spain
WHY: Made from the Tempranillo grape, this tastes like the world's best cola, only without all the sugar. Really yummy. And while Tempranillo isn't famous for bottle aging, there's additional complexity, especially in the bouquet, thanks to four years in bottle. Since this wine is unfiltered, you should decant before serving.
PRICE: 750 ml/$24.95
