Bought at Salisbury Wine Shop — 3 days ago
Needed to buy another bottle at the local shop for a discount so picked this up. Wow!! What a find! Awesome, well balanced nose with peach, oak, and even smoke, dirt, and red elements. Bright and smooth! Great aperitif as it isn’t sweet enough to be a dessert wine. Loved it! — 4 days ago

The better steak wine over the 2009 Ormes de Pez but, not the more beautiful, elegant wine.
The 2010 Rioja marries the Wagyu Ribcap while showing its Ranchero characteristics.
The palate shows tumble-weed, tannin fruits that are; brambly, ripe, slightly candied; blackberriesblack raspberries, dry, dark cherries with skin, ruby, black plums, very w/ ripe strawberries. Tumbleweed, straw, dark spice, tough leather, clove, sage, dry clay & top soil, crushed rocks, black pepper, dark, berry cola, mint, oak barrel powder, used charcoal with candied florals that are fresh & withering; dark, red, purple & blue. The acidity is top flight. The long finish is well balanced fruit & earth, persisting nicely falling onto earth & dark spices.
