2009 Dehesa La Granja. Spain. $20. Alejandro Fernandez and his Grupo Pesquera produces some of the best wine in Spain, in the world for that matter. This winery is located near the western border of the Toro, Castilia y Leon region of Zamora. Tempranillo grapes grown near the banks of the Guarena River and aged for at least 5 years with two of those years in the barrel. When you find a $20 bottle of wine that tastes like a $200 dollar bottle of wine it is a great day. This is exactly what the 2009 Dehesa La Granja is. It is aging beautifully. Dark as night. Minimal signs of age. A big fruity nose entices your taste buds. Lush and balanced on the mouthfeel. Big, bold dark blackberry and cherry fruity notes. Bing cherry is the predominant flavor.  Anise, cigar box, vanilla make this wine powerful, silky  and elegant. It finishes long like a midnight summer’s dream. Jackpot. Wines like this just prove how over priced most wines are.  What a gem this 2009 juice is. Buy it now while you can still find it – Keith Ian
