Where has this wine been?


Great affordable Tempranillo, it is abundant. But Tempranillo of distinctive purity normally comes at a price. The uncommon union of flashy, ripe, minerally red wine from a classic Spanish terroir, and a minimal-intervention winemaking approach wherein no extended maceration occurs and no oak barrels are used, is a recipe for delight. Factor into this equation a price of less than seven dollars, and it may begin to sound even a bit unreal. We must admit that we all did double takes when we first heard the price of our newest Tempranillo find, and it didn’t take much deliberation to jump on our first dozen cases of what will surely be a best-buy section staple for the foreseeable future. Suburban customers, please welcome Venta Morales.
