Ilegal Joven

Ilegal Joven

Not only does Ilegal have a cool backstory (owner John Rexer used to mule bottles between Mexico and his bar in Guatemala, hence the name), but its sub-$50 expression stands up to more-expensive bottles. "Ilegal Joven is great because it is so light on the smoke," Mix says. "It's not bang you over the head smokey, which I personally like. Some of the other nuances can come out this way." [winechateau.com; $45.97]
