Smoke, gamey, sage, and dark cherry. Steady tannins and acidity, but not too heavy. Very interesting representation.

Just ok, oak is not well integrated, fruit concentration slightly lacking.

Very good wine considering the low cost. Easy to drink with just about anything.

Classic Rioja, although simple as you may expect at the lower price point. Red fruit flavors of cherry with some cedar and leather on the nose. A wine you could get as a house pour in a Spanish tapas bar and be very happy with while eating just about anything.
