At a wine store on 79th St., near Amsterdam, an enthusiastic store owner insists that I buy this orange-labeled Spanish wine, only $9. He says it's his favorite. Ok, ok, fine.
Not so bad, actually. A little peppery at first, a little earthy. A friend and I drank it over the course of a few hours, and by the end it was tasting pretty good. Our thinking at the time was that the wine was getting better. 83.
