Our favorite three bottles on Txoko's list

Jordan Mackay | March 26, 2012 | Food & Drink Story Wine and Spirits Eat and Drink

Ryan Maxey looks for bottles that are both unusual and affordable. Here are some of our favorites from his list.

2008 Mengoba, Godello and Doña Blanca, Bierzo It’s full of flavors of pear, apple, and toasted almonds, but the merging of lift and weight is what makes it so delicious. $46

2009 Zaumau Garnacha Blanca, Priorat White wines don’t often come from hot regions like Priorat. This one is full of savory flavors of herbs and dried fruits and is densely mineral. $36

2010 Monje Hollera Carbonic Maceration, Tacoronte An exuberant red made from the listán negro grape, it’s as concentrated and incisive as good cru Beaujolais but has a vibrant, savory twist. $42
