Rioja Rosado Tempranillo 2018

This dependable rosé is a rich, pink salmon color, with a mineral-laden nose featuring strawberry and cherry aromas. The palate is dry, fruity and laced with minerals. A good acidity provides for excellent food pairing and a refreshing demeanor on its own. There’s a touch of orange peel on the finish.
The wine is a great chilled sipper, but also pairs well with spring salads, summer grilling or, paella, if you're up to it.

Crianza Rioja Tempranillo 2015

I’m finding this to be very elegant and lively with its spicy, red-fruited expression of pure Tempranillo. I love this style and the price point. — 11 days ago

Rioja Tempranillo 2015

Rioja at it’s best. Nice structured Tempranillo. Medium-full bodied. Intense and grave varietal comes through. Good wine to enjoy with food as well as siping. — 6 days ago

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2008

This is a very enjoyable red Rioja.
Showing black and red fruits with earth, vegetables, spices, tobacco leaf, peppercorn, leather, cedar, leather and vanilla.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with with great complexity and mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats, cheeses and pickled vegetables.

Nicely aged and peaking now. Nice and engaging.

A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. Aged for 24 in American oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Kirkland Signature

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Color of ruby with brown and purple note on the rim. Nose of dried strawberry, oak, cured salty meat, spice, round and polished. Taste is dominated by spiciness, zest, solid tannins, and some tobacco leaves. Aftertaste of some mineral, acidity, some more zest, and tobacco leaves. Less than $7, she is awesome. — 17 days ago

Bordón Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2007

Classic style Rioja. Still quite youthful fruit. Notes of leather, prunes, figs, spices and dark cherries. Toasted, burnt oak character, but not too much. I love this style of wine! — 2 days ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2005

A really interesting wine. Even though I know these can be everything from black fruit dominated to more of an ash dominated type of wine, the notes here were a little bit tart and even a little on the sweeter side. Dates, sweet plums. Had a hint of tobacco, very ashy in the middle and finish. There is suggestion that this one may even be on its way down, and I definitely question that now. Left remaining 25%of bottle for 12 hours later and although the nose had markedly improved, the wine had not. This doesn't seem to be a good ager. — 5 days ago

Gran Reserva 904 Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2007

Pillars of 5 founding families erected a winery in 1890 producing wines of outstanding quality that continue to evolve. Bright Ruby, complex fruit aromas, spice and oak. 90% Tempranillo & 10% Graciano, 48 mos on American oak, not made every year! From Haro, Ripe Berry fruits, powerful yet elegant, with spice & smoky notes on full, very tight, tannins. Lingering finish, nice mouthfeel, ending with mineral earthy tones, a joy to Sip!! Tasting great, has much more aging potential. Great Value! — 4 days ago

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Rosé 2008

One of my favorite wines, period. Gap in production & hard to get in (at least my NY area) States makes it even more special. Starting with a gorgeous deep tangerine color, it’s amazing how fresh both on nose & on the palate—belying its 11 yr age but no surprise given Lopez de Heredia. It just invites & invites into a world of a sun drenched herb garden, planted w zucchini & tomatoes. Medium viscosity & absolutely the most food adaptable wine. Nothing oxidized or tired here. Had with a saffron based fisherman’s stew. What Orange wines should aspire to! — 10 days ago
