Bargain Wine of the Week: Naia 2007 Rueda

A couple of years ago Tim had to host a business get-together in Chicago for people attending an industry conference and trade show.

A full dinner would have been too much, under the circumstances, so he decided on cocktails and tapas at a Spanish restaurant and asked his friends at Fine Cooking magazine to recommend a red and a white wine to serve with the evening of little bites.

The editor got in touch with a sommelier who knew Spanish wines. His white pick, a 2004 Naia Rueda, was the hit of the night.

We found the 2007 Naia for $10 (it's probably cheaper some places), and it lives up to Tim's recollection of its 2004 predecessor. It has a crisp yet rich flavor that would work well with heavier dishes.

If you see this in your wine store for a decent price, make sure to check it out.
