I typically enjoy white Rioja and this is no exception. Deep golden color, subtle but apparent oak usage - very tactful. Bruised orchard fruit, dry hay, ripe citrus, and a green celery type thing. Heavy and oxidative, without going overboard with either element. Went surprisingly well with seafood gumbo, which I had no idea what to pair with. — 3 days ago
Fragrant strawberries on the nose, rich red fruit combined with fresh minerals on the palate, lightly spiced, dry, with a medium finish. Firm and clean, overall an excellent blend of Malbecs from neighbouring areas. — 4 days ago
Excellent!! Smooth, not so oaken as Finca Munoz, smooth, full-body. No acid in pre-and after-taste. Grape-age 2018, Vintage 2019 — 11 days ago
Beautiful nose, berries with mild tobacco hints — a month ago
Wow! Velvet, dark currants, mocha, caramel, dark chocolate, saddle-wood, underbrush, gravel, stones & elegance that only happens with this much time forward. Round acidity and beautiful balance and finish.
Stupidly good with our Tri-tip!!!
Photos of; my visits to Bodega La Rioja, their well backlit tasting bar, outside patio and large oak barrels that were assembled inside the Bodega more than 100 years ago...they’re that big and have required many repairs over the years. — 10 days ago
