2007 Mas Martinet Menut Tinto 

Priorat, Spain / $20-$21 Retail

This tasty find from the Priorat region on Spain's northeast coast exemplifies the high quality and appealing affordability of the region's offerings. A blend of 50 percent Garnacha, 15 percent each Syrah and Carignan, and 10 percent each Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the full-bodied wine was aged 18 months. It offers aromas of black currants, toast and a welcome rusticity. On the palate, the wine yields dark fruit, coffee, herbal notes, taut tannins and a bracing acidity. Drink it with roasted meats, grilled chops, hearty casseroles, stews, wild game and fowl. Buy it at: Swirl Wine Market, Cork & Bottle and Bacchanal. Drink it at: Barcelona Tapas Cafe and Sukhothai.
