Wine of the Week for July 23, 2012

Posted: July 23, 2012

Bodegas Atalaya Almansa Laya 2009 (88 points, $9)
A compact red, with a smoky mineral base and flavors of black and red currant, fragrant herbs and a touch of espresso. Balanced and fresh, but the chewy tannins recommend this to food—try this with grilled lamb. Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell. Drink now through 2017. 10,000 cases made. From Spain.
