Tridente Tempranillo 2009

Aged for 15 months in oak barrels, this Spanish red with a D.O. of Castilla y Leon comes from the area of Zamora, which is known for growing a lot of plonk. This, however, is anything but. Full bodied, creamy, it exudes plum, dark berry and chocolate flavors, with very soft tannins in a long finish. It's 15% alcohol, so keep that in mind while drinking it. Very nicely priced at $11.99.
