Browsing trader Joe's wine aisle last Sunday afternoon in Arrowhead, I spotted this yellow paper wrapped Spanish Red: 2005 Monte Ducay Cariñena Reserva (Spain, Aragón, Cariñena) for a whole $6. There were 2 bottles left on the shelf, in a space that used to hold at least 2 cases, so I grabbed both. I was not disappointed.
Very drinkable. Expand your horizons beyond Merlot and Cabernet, and try some Cariñena. It's good stuff. Others agree (links here, here, and here). And now, I have another bottle to enjoy, or take to friends this weekend!
