Correct older styled rioja. Yes the American oak is there but also nice earthiness and complexity.

Amazing with a chorizo + chicken + shrimp + lobster paella. Big fruity flavor with depth, perfect with spicy chorizo.

Si senor! Muy bueno vino. This is insanely good and a ridiculous value. Rich, earthy, clean, balanced.
