Really tasty goes good with pasta. Also a great wine to have by itself. A little chilled as well does the trick.

In the mid 1800s, Eleuterio Martinez Arzok established himself as a producer and merchant of wines from the Rioja region. He started by selling his wines direct from the barrel. Dark red with berry fruit aromas and toasty spice. Tart cherry flavors with pepper and oak notes. Hard tannins that need some calming. Even though this is a drink now wine, it needs time, but for $10, open the bottle about 2 hours before consumption.

Medium intense aromas of red cherry, plum, vanilla, smoke, and spice. Medium bodied with flavors of strawberry, red cherry, vanilla, and coconut with a long finish.
