Great value from Spain...

"Senorio del Aguila offerings are very good values." -- The Wine Advocate 

2009 Señorío del Águila Crianza...$9.99
60% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Señorío del Águila range includes the top wines of the cooperative of Paniza, a modern and progressive winery in the D.O. of Cariñena. Named after the area’s majestic Golden Eagle (“águila” is Spanish for “eagle”), they offer a fresh, contemporary rendering of the classic, oak-aged wines of Northern Spain.

Tasting Notes: Ripe, intense, concentrated, and complex. Aromas of black cherry/black raspberry follow to a lush, youthful, palate. An opulent wine reflective of the outstanding 2009 vintage, with firm tannins leading to a long, lingering finish.  Serve With: Excellent with soft cheeses, tapas, a wide range of grilled meats and fish (chicken, burgers, salmon) and simple pizza and pasta dishes.
