2007 Torres Ibericos Rioja

From: Calificado Rioja, Spain

Price: $18

Serve with: Grilled steak, lamb

This lush, ripe Spanish red from the venerable Torres firm — now spreading its wings in Rioja after decades in Penedes — shows intense flavors and admirable depth. It offers well-defined flavors of black cherry, herbs, spices, smoked meat and vanilla. It's quite enjoyable now, but could age well for several years.
