2009 Borsao Garnacha 

Aragon, Spain / $7-$8 Retail

This easy-drinking red wine is one of many remarkably good buys imported from Spain. A medium-bodied wine from Aragon's Campo de Borja subregion, it is a blend of 85 percent Garnacha (Grenache) and 25 percent Tempranillo. It offers aromas of spicy red and black fruit, black pepper and sweet spice and savory notes. On the palate, taste layers of juicy plum, dried cherry, blackberry and cassis with a slightly brambly character and hints of cocoa and leather. Drink it with chorizo or merguez sausages, burgers, grilled vegetables, paella and dishes with romesco sauce. Buy it at: Terranova Brothers Superette, Whole Foods Uptown, Sidney's Wine Cellar, Habanos, some Rouses and Fresh Market in Mandeville. Drink it at: Le Meritage, Galvez Restaurant, Mimi's in the Marigny, Cure and Milan Lounge. — Brenda Maitland
