2013 Vina Borgia 

Campo de Borja, Spain

Retail $6-$8

Some critics have called this bottling the best value in the wine world, and it delivers far more than its price promises. A Jorge Ordonez Selection, the wine is estate-bottled at Bodegas Borsao in Spain's Campo de Borja Denominacion de Origen (DO) in the the Aragon region. Founded more than 55 years ago, Bodegas Borsao owns more than 3,700 acres of vineyards at altitudes of 1,300 to 2,300 feet above sea level. The wine features all garnacha grapes macerated on their skins for six hours before pressing. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks. In the glass, it offers vibrant aromas of crushed red berries, a hint of earth and spice notes. On the palate, taste blueberry, cherry, plum, red currants, a touch of peppery spice, mild tannins and good acidity. Decant 20 minutes before serving. Drink it with braised beef short ribs, roast fowl, pizza, pork tenderloin, lamb chops or meatballs in tomato sauce. Buy it at: Martin Wine Cellar, Terranova Brothers Superette and The Fresh Market on St. Charles Avenue.
