Casa Maria - Tempranillo Vino de la Tierra - The under $10 category is without doubt the toughest to stock if you are really doing your due diligence and actually tasting every wine you stock (we do!!) Needless to say we kiss a lot of frogs before we find wines we love and this winery from north central Spain has both a red and white that drink well above their humble price tags! The Tempranillo 2011 is deep ruby purple color, with a nose of crushed sweet dark fruit, supple and mouth-filling and clean on the palate, none of those over-processed/stretched notes you get in so many wines in this price range. Will you wax poetically for hours? Nope! But you will get a delicious juicy, full bodied well-made wine that you can enjoy guilt free at an incredible price!
