appellation: Ribera del Duero, Spain
Third-generation grape growers, friends turned brothers in law and low-key garage winemakers Miguel Hornillos and Javier Ballesteros seem to have a pretty good thing going. Working a combined 40 hectares of coveted vineyards in the Ribera del Duero DO, they sell most of their grapes to the larger regional players while keeping a small allotment to use in their little roadside winery. The “Mibal” Joven (young) tempranillo is un-oaked with fresh, juicy fruit, a velvety mouthfeel and soft tannins. If you’ve got any BBQs left this summer, this would be a good bottle to open (or any meal that calls for a “simple but good” red).
