2011 Idilico Graciano Reserva, $27.00

I can’t wait for everyone to try this wine. It has a deep, dark profile with flavors of black currant, pepper and black tea, along with silky tannins and nice depth on the finish. Displays great structure and just the right amount of acidity to balance it all out. Idilico is the only winery in Washington focusing exclusively on Spanish varieties; this is a great alternative for anyone stuck in a Cabernet rut.
