The find of the year...

In stock at all stores.  We went through over 100 cases last fall and now we just received more from the importer and at an even better price!!!

A 11 year old wine for only $13 (with a suggested retail of $30).  
A "Gran Reserva" - the top Spanish designation!
2001 Senorio del Aguila Gran Reserva....$12.99
Compare to a $30 on The Wine Advocate

We are the lowest price on Wine-Searcher
"The 2001 Senorio del Aguila Gran Reserva is the same blend as the Crianza. It was aged in barrel for 24 months and 36 months in bottle prior to release. It offers a fragrant bouquet of Asian spices, incense, violets, black cherry, and blackberry. leading to a mouth-filling, sweetly-fruited, pleasure-bent offering that will drink well for another 6-8 years." 
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate
