Not only is today’s Spanish wine scene “among the most vibrant, dynamic and creative in the world” (Tim Atkin, Master of Wine), it offers incredible value. This stunner is from Valencia and it’s on a serious winning streak. The last seven releases each scored major international golds and trophies, and this beauty (from officially ‘excellent’ 2011) counts among its awards tally several international medals from some of the wine industry's most important competitions.

Gran Reserva, after all, is the top tier of perfectly mature Spanish reds – and local star Maria Angeles Camara is a leading name in the Valencia region. She gave her prized Tempranillo an extended 30 months in barrel, which provides a soft edge of vanilla to the ripe red fruit core. Aromatic and smooth, it’ll shine with duck or lamb, strong cheese, or tapas such as jamón serrano. Decanting one hour before serving will really open up those silky, spice-kissed flavors.
