Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Silky, lusciously earth driven, but with developed and ripe red fruit character. All the woodsy notes you could want with Rioja, but the elegance of Burgundy (as intended). — 11 days ago

Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

Balanced and nice blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha, sweet buy just to impress when tasting a juicy red grilled beef sirloin. Some fruity flavors, also from red fruits. It is a very good table wine. — 12 days ago

Reserva Selección de Familia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2015

Not sure if I've logged the 2015 vintage of this; I drink a lot every year. I have to say that this year it's a little underwhelming compared to prior vintages (again, I go back at least to 2007 on this consistently). Body is lighter, medium plus instead of full, and the nose and palate are not as round. Acid cuts it up a bit midway through the tasting experience. Notes are not complex.
