Mendoza, Argentina / $10 Retail

This high-quality wine comes with the added bargain of being packaged in a one-liter bottle, roughly eight ounces more than the usual 750 ml. size. The estate-grown fruit was sourced from Argentina's largest family-owned winery. A blend of 70 percent Tempranillo — the top red grape from Spain's Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions — and 30 percent Malbec, the wine was vinified in stainless steel. In the glass, the robust wine offers complex aromas of cherry, red berries and spice and is followed on the palate by ripe plum and an earthy character with a balanced acidity and silky tannins. Decant several hours before serving. Drink it with grilled meats, hearty stews and roasts, casseroles, wild game, pizza and barbecue. Buy it at: Whole Food Market. — Brenda Maitland
