I almost bought this today. Looks like I’ll be going back tomorrow to get a bottle based on your notes. Thanks!


@Eric Bass you can’t go wrong with Muga. I hope you enjoy it!

Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1975

Mycket komplex doft och smak och här händer mycket utveckling i glaset. Den har anmärkningsvärt rostade toner. Mycket bärig och kryddig. Efter ca 45 min i glaset har alla sekundära aromer släppt och den känns mycket levande och frisk! — 3 days ago

Viñedos de Altura Rioja Tempranillo 2016

Deep Ruby with youthful aromas of black fruits, smoke and blossom spice. On the palate ripe berry fruit with vanilla and nutmeg layering on tobacco, smoke and espresso. Generous acidity on fine soft tannins, long finish ending with an earthy fruit flair. Nice value! Good to drink now should improve nicely over next few years! — 3 days ago

Castillo Ygay Reserva Especial Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

17.5/20 (93/100) Насыщенный, комплексный аромат с нотами кожи, жареных лесных орехов, спелых чёрных ягод и шоколада. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и мягкими танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе с заметной спиртуозностью. Пышное вино. (02.11.2019) #dfwe2019 — 13 days ago

Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

Always a pleasure to drink a Lopez De Heredia! Dried flowers galore with a solid core of dark red berries. Dusty tannins that really give the wine some character. Plenary more ahead for this one! — 13 days ago

Love this stuff, the blanc's even more so! But they need years.

@E & K G Oh they are magical, but take need to hold 4-6 years they are finally released by RLdH, much better at 8-10+. You'll be surprised how amazing they are at those benchmarks, and how little you paid for the experience, you just need the patience. You should be able to find bottles with a few years of age on the secondary market. They also have a Gravonia and Tondonia in blancs, I've had as old as '90.

Viña Ardanza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2009

First time drinking Viña Ardanza. Chose this 2009 to try before the highly anticipated 2010 Reserva Especial. This is so youthful at the moment and will doutbless improve with age (and plenty of it). There’s a prominence of oak & tannin now that sets it up well for the long haul. Medium bodied with plenty of acidity and a lasting finish. Was brilliant with a fatty sirloin. A great example of modern Rioja that should age well - and a promising forerunner to the 2010. — 9 hours ago

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2014

Love it. Very old world classic Rioja. Fruit needs time to emerge but it’s surrounded by intense darkness. Superb. — 16 days ago
