Drink of the Week: Torremorón, Ribera del Duero, 2009

In “The Price Is Right” feature from our current issue, writer Amy Zavatto offers up tips on how to get the most bang for your wine buck. Today’s Drink of the Week, Torremorón’s 2009 Ribera del Duero is one of those great-value finds, offering aromas of rose petals and plums, flavors of juicy berries and a lingering finish of black pepper spice. Crafted from 100 percent Tempranillo, this medium-bodied wine is one to stand up to hearty winter braises, soups and stews. It comes from the Ribera del Duero region in Spain’s northern plateau, an area perfectly suited for growing Tempranillo, and it’s just one of the many incredible wine values the region has to offer. $12, astorwines.com
