• 2009, Yaso, Tempranillo, Spain $10

(WA 93 pt., The 2011 was one of my top under $12 picks last year, and the 2012 edition is setting up to be just as good. Grab a bowl of roasted pork stew, kick back and relax.)

• 2009, Reserva Rioja, Spain $7

(100% Tempranillo with 2 years of oak aging. All I have to say about this wine is that you’ll be lucky to get your hands on a bottle cuz I just might buy every case in the joint. 7 bucks! Are you kidding me?!)
