Under $9 Rioja and 91 Points!

2012 Rio Madre Rioja...$8.49
Bodegas y Vinedos Ilurce
"(100% graciano; aged in French oak for 11 months): Opaque ruby. Sexy, high-toned cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by notes of Indian spices and fresh rose. Smooth and seamless in texture, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors that become spicier with air. The floral element repeats on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and persistence. This wine delivers uncanny value and has the structure to age. 91 points"
Rated 91/100 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sep/Oct 13
