Drank 3/23/20. Excellent with grilled pork loin.

American oak evident, with sawn lumber and vanilla supporting dark fruit and baking spices. On the palate red and black fruits, with cherry, red currant, black currant, vanilla, and leather, which are backed by medium +, well integrated tannins. Fairly long finish. Insane QPR here as this wine cost just under $10 (Costco). Buy it if you can find it. A great representation of typical, old school rioja for the price.

4/21/8/3/4 +50 =90 pts.

QPR off the charts, drinks like an over $20 and I paid $8 @ Costco! New World style, very generous & full - great fruit expression w/some tannic grip. Some secondary layers peeking out so we’ll see when I finish bottle tomorrow
