2006 Auroch Toro, Spain

Sangiovese is to Italy as Tempranillo is to Spain... and just as my love yearns for a good Italian, enter my new favorite red!

Tempranillo is a black grape variety grown in the Rioja region of Spain (who's currently producing some the most sought-after wines!) The Toro is made from young grapes and is an up-and-coming regional wine that combines a variety of flavors – from herbs and spices to cherry, vanilla and tobacco. It’s juicy, yet very soft on the palette and would pair easily with just about any meal choice.

Price: $14/bottle
