Rounded light dark fruit. No really, that's a thing. A bit thin, but pleasantly drinkable. Quite tasty, in point of fact. Curious to see if it gets more or less complex as it opens.

On special for $15. More subtle than other rioja but a nice blend of oak, berry and vanilla

Rioja that says reserva but wasn't up to reserva standards. Tasted better on second day but that's like eating a meal and then realizing the next day it was good.

Nose primarily of leather, toasty wood notes, a hint of vanilla, cherry fruit and spiced plum. So what thin of the palate with drying tannins and medium + acidity

Old school Rioja. Austere, tight, black fruit, peppery notes, drying tannins. Should've had it with food. $10.

Cranberry, pomegranate and tart red fruit with some oak. Good acid in the finish. Good value wine.

Food friendly, enjoy it with meat dishes or mild cheeses. Nice spicy flavor. Alc. 13.5%
