Great inexpensive #Rioja. Red fruit nose with some mild earthy aromas. Black raspberry, finishing with stewed cherry. Light on the tannins with decent acidity. Crowd pleaser.

Delicious on its own or paired with a meal. Spicy, yet fruity and smooth. And you can't beat the price.

Peppery on the nose, earthy spice and oak on the palate with mild tannins. Dry and light to medium bodied with a mild finish. Easy drinking dry red.

Nice fresh bouquet. Full body & fruity up front, but subtle, not overpowering, plum & cherry, pleasantly dry finish, with hints of black pepper & vanilla. Very enjoyable.

Always love a Serres. Having been drinking the regular bottling(s) for a few years, I'm not entirely convinced that the reserve adds much. It's, perhaps, a little less fruit-forward, with more wood/leather (no big surprise). With folks "discovering" Serres recently, the price of this reserve likely will match the 2015... which reminds me: I have cases to buy.
