WINE OF THE MONTH- DECEMBER

December 30, 2012

To close down the year, here’s my pick for December, made by a top level Spanish producer that earned my Wine of the Year a few years back. This is their entry level wine, a 100% Tempranillo that perennially delivers extremely impressive and unusual power and finesse for this price point. I enjoyed it during my Birthday dinner at Hugo’s Frog Bar alongside a massive ribeye steak.
