Shopping List: 2002 Cortijo III Rioja

illuswine.jpgHoward Goldberg, writing in the New York Times, offers this winning recommendation for the 2002 Cortijo III Rioja ($7): "This exuberant, addictive dark wine from Iberia's signature tempranillo grape is plump and juicy. It's like a blend of cherries and unidentifiable berries, with hints of herbs and tobacco."

The Spanish red wine is available at Martin Brothers, 2781 Broadway, at 107th Street (212.222.8218).
