Ostatu Blanco (2011)
Comments: Mostly Viura with some Malvasia. Crisp and clean, with pleasant apple notes and a touch of mineral.
|Average price: $13.49 from 1 store||
Bodeagas Muga Reserva Rioja (2008)
Comments: Lovely dark fruit aromas with sweet and savory spices. Fuller-bodied, with ripe dark fruit and a slight leather quality.
|Previously available for $14.99||
R. López de Heredia Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva Viña Bosconia (2002)
Comments: An elegant and refined style of Rioja - earthy, dried red fruit on the nose, with a medium-body and notes of dried herbs, dried red fruits, and savory spice on the palate.
|Average price: $60.72 from 1 store||
Viña Gravonia (2003)
Comments: Firm stone fruit notes, earth, and mineral. Medium-bodied with a pleasant kick of acidity on the palate. Very good now, and I'd love to see how it mellows over the next year.
|Previously available for $22.99||
