2010 Alamosa Wine Cellars Graciano, Tio Pancho Estate, Texas Hill Country

You don’t find much Graciano outside of Spain’s Rioja region, but Jim Johnson grows it in Texas and makes a decent varietal wine with it. Its high acid makes it ideal for a simple spaghetti dinner, and its burnt cherry, tar, tobacco and earth flavors would pair nicely with a smoky cheese (such as Gouda).
Tasting Room price: $20 (May 2012)
Wine Lines rating: 84
