The reviews say that it’s over Oaked and imbalanced at least in this vintage but I disagreed. This is still quite tight and while it’s no Rioja Alta, it’s still quite good.

3.5. Excellent 2016 Reserve Rioja. Fine nose, with smooth and complex taste. On sale for $25.17, usually $26.49.

2016 vintage. Plummy lavender cherryfest in the nose. Medium bod. Slightly astringent finish but pleasantly so. Nice structure. Grainy tannins. A bit of cocoa and oak in the mid-palate. Pretty.
