Ripe red fruit and candied rose aromas and flavors define this exuberant Rioja, which takes on spicy nuance with air. Well-concentrated but lively in style, the 2018 shows very good balance and focus, with finely woven tannins adding closing grip. $15.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, January 2021)

This classic, bargain-priced red from Rioja displays intense cassis, cherry, espresso and licorice flavors, along with subtle vanilla and woodsmoke nuances. It’s still on the youthful, fruit-dominated side but it opens up quickly and picks up a spicy accent with a little bit of air. $12.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2019)

👃🏻 fruta roja, palote floral 👄 entrada frutal, agradable y disfrutable, quizás demasiado alcohol en el final.
