Tempranillo Dude.

Flaco Tempranillo 2015 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Flaco translates to "dude". Tempranillo is Spainís signature grape. Madrid is the great unknown in terms of Spanish wine regions, but itís the home to old Tempranillo vineyards and wines selling at excellent prices. Flaco is fun to sip by itself but would be a highly versatile food wine. Cheers to this expressive taste of Madrid at a super price for a sustainable estate wine of this quality. Local price/750 ml: 10. (included in Woodland Wine Merchant 6/60 deal, 2/9/17.)

Hints of Breakfast.

San Alejandro Las Rocas Calatayud El Renegado red blend 2013 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • In the Calatayud wine region in northern Spain where this affordable red originates, the soil is stoney, loose, high in lime and poor in nutrients (hence the name Las Rocas). If you're a renegade, pair this with breakfast any time. With aromas of lightly smoky bacon, blueberry pancakes, cranberry, raspberry, coffee and rocks, it's peppery, tart and minerally on the tongue.

The Aragon Express.

Evodia Aragon Grenache 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Aragon is located in the north of Spain, from the Pyrenees to the Iberian plateau. Garnacha is widely grown and can make big wines that are uniquely expressive of this area. Evodia 2014 is deliciously affordable, fruit forward and looking for a bite to eat.
