2012 Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos...$13.99

Compare to Robert Parker's Suggested price of $18
The terrific 2012 Tres Picos is one of the finest inexpensive, Grenache-based wines made in the world. This full-bodied beauty boasts a deep ruby color as well as loads of strawberry and black cherry fruit, hints of lavender and crushed rocks, sweet tannin, and a broad, savory mouthfeel. It, too, should be consumed over the next 3-4 years.
Rated 92/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
