The Finca Villacreces "Pruno" is a fantastic value year after year, but the 2010 is a very serious wine for a seriously low price. This Tempranillo/Cabernet blend from vineyards adjacent to the famous Vega Sicilia in Ribera Del Duero, Spain, received 94 Points from critic Robert Parker where he exclaimed:
This wine is in stock (as of May 10, 2013) here at Murphy's Wine Shop, and if you put together a case the price is under $20/bottle! Don't miss this one.

Here's the 94 Point Review from Robert Parker:
"Wow! From a vineyard adjacent to Spain’s greatest as well as most expensive red wine, Vega Sicilia, this 2,500-case cuvee made for Eric Solomon is spectacular. Full-bodied with an opaque purple color in addition to an extraordinary bouquet of charcoal, wood smoke, creme de cassis and blackberries intermixed with hints of acacia flowers and licorice, this stunning, multidimensional 2010 is loaded. Its texture, richness, complexity, purity and length result in a wine that considerably over-delivers. Normally, one would expect to pay $75 to $150 for a wine that tastes like this, but this beauty can be yours for $20 or less! Moreover, it will keep for a decade."
Decant this one!
