This month’s recommendations from Dave McIntyre.

article originally featured in The Washington Post Apr 11th 2012


Here are my April picks of wines that offer exceptional value, priced from $10 to $15.

★★★Exceptional ★★Excellent ★Very Good

Alvarez de Toledo Mencia Roble 2008 Alvarez de Toledo Mencia Roble


Biero, Spain, $10

Bierzo is a trendy region in northwest Spain producing some fine reds from the mencia grape . Rarely do they cost this little, and the Alvarez de Toledo is an excellent introduction to the grape. In flavor profile, it tastes rather like a cross of cabernet franc, with dark cherry and white pepper spice, and merlot, with its plummy softness.
