Wine Find: 2009 Montebuena Rioja

From: Rioja, Spain

Price: $13

Serve with: Grilled red meat

This smooth, young red wine made entirely from tempranillo offers vibrant black cherry and vanilla flavors, a touch of herbs and enough lush fruit to give the impression — but not the reality — of sweetness. Rioja is still a fine source of affordable wines, and importer Kysela Pere & Fils is doing a great job uncovering Spain's hidden gems.
