Arbanta Rioja 2005

The Arbanta Rioja 2005 is a delicious, organically grown, easy-to-drink, all-Tempranillo wine.

Finding the vintage is a challenge -- it's on the back of the bottle, in tiny type on the lower right corner of the Rioja certification label. But once you've done that, rest assured that this $10 drinker will reward you with mild tannins and a nose and palate of dark cherries and tea. Drink it by itself, or pair it with roast chicken, burgers or pizza.
