Aragon, Spain / $13 Retail

Garnacha grapes, Spain's most widely planted red varietal, were sourced from 65- to 80-year-old vines in the Vino de la Tierra appellation and the Bajo Aragon sub-region for this wine. To retain the freshness and exuberance of the fruit, the juice touched no oak and spent no time in the cellar following fermentation. The result is a vibrant wine with fruit-forward flavors, good acidity, well-integrated tannins and a satisfying finish. Expect aromas of red berries, blueberries and floral and herbal notes. On the palate, taste black plum, raspberry, currant and a pleasing minerality with hints of anise and kirsch. Drink it with tapas, barbecue, pork chops, chicken, sausages and grilled vegetables. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle. Drink it at: Redemption, K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen, Emeril's, Muriel's Jackson Square and Louisiana Pizza Kitchen at the French Market. — Brenda Maitland
