Here's everything you need to make this Thanksgiving the best one yet

2007 Bodegas Sierra Cantabria Rioja 'Crianza'

A 4-year-old red from Rioja for less than $20? That's why Bodegas Sierra Cantabria always gets such high marks for its price/quality ratio. Winemaker Marcos Eguren conjures up a delicious intro-level Rioja, one that anybody would be proud to serve. Modern in style, it has both fruit and intensity without sacrificing elegance. Layers of blackberries and spice and its well-integrated tannins make the 2007 Sierra Cantabria Rioja "Crianza" a great quaffing wine.

Have it with grilled sausages, charcuterie, tapas and first courses. Put a steak on the grill and pop open a bottle for a great quick supper.
