Vina Eguia Rioja
Rioja, Spain
round  $14.00

A big bright aroma with berries, spice and a velvety plush taste of red fruit make this Spanish wine a real charmer. Tempranillo is an indigenous grape to Spain, and the main grape of the wines of the Rioja region. Rioja shares many qualities with Pinot Noir – soft berry and cherry fruit flavors, medium acidity and tannins. It stands up well to the strong tastes of grilled meats and smoked paprika – and you can serve it slightly chilled – perfect for a spring dinner from the grill.
