Coronas Tempranillo 2006
This Catalan red from Spain's largest producer, Torres, is mostly Tempranillo, with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon--the name Tempranillo is a diminutive of the Spanish temprano, early, and refers to a native early ripening grape. The wine itself is a nicely judged blend of dark fruit flavors and relatively soft tannins, and drinks very smoothly. $9.99.
