Lift from an attractive touch of VA, married to very high-toned, still quite fresh Tempranillo aromas & flavors. Got that core of sea saltiness that even LDH reds seem to always display. Old-fashioned and not offering apologies...superb! #lopezdeheredia #tempranillo #riojaalta — 4 years ago
Delicious 2010 Baron De Ley Gran Reserva . Mainly Tempranillo (85%) with some Graciano, the grapes are from the small Cenicero vineyard located in Rioja Alta. Matured for 2 years in 50% French oak and 50% American oak, with a further 3 years in the bottle before release. On the palate it is full bodied, soft and smooth in a classic Rioja style. Dark fruit, tobacco, black pepper with mild balsamic notes. The acidity and tannins are well balanced and give a complex and long finish. Great wine at $29.

Great value Marques de Caveres Rioja from the well received 2010 vintage. Full bodied and powerful this delicious wine delivers lots of dark berry, plum, pepper, leather and a subtle earthiness in the mouth. While the tannins are still ripe, it does seem balanced and should last another 5-7 years.
