Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2010

This is not your beach quaff rose. Everything written by the other reviewers on this site is true and more. A singular, incredibly complex wine the deserves the hype. Next bottles get several hours of slow ox. — 12 days ago

Viña Ardanza Reserva Selección Especial Tempranillo Blend 2010

Classically styled Rioja - exactly what one should expect. Lovely plummy fruit, a little heavy on the vanilla notes for my taste. Great backbone of acidity. — a day ago
