Bouteille_Ribera_72DPIRibera del Duero 2012, Chartier, Spain ($19.95, SAQ  #12246622)
For this wine, the renowned sommelier has collaborated with bodegas Arrocal to create a most civilized version of the local tinta del pais that expresses itself freely with an obviously joyous fruitiness and, above all, that measures up guilt-free to its barrel aging, yeilding a tight frame finale. Kudos! (5) ★★★ ©
