Wonderful oak on the nose which fades quickly but a pleasure to drink at $19

Deep red with purple edges and aromas of blue/black fruits with smoky notes. On the palate blueberry and blackberry flavors with cacao notes and vivid acidity. Fine tannins with good balance and mouthfeel carries this wine to a medium finish ending with oaky tones.

Red fruit and berry forward. Smooth finish. Could use more acidity.

Nice to be able to go to the cellar and find a nice Rioja like this to pair with ropa vieja, frijoles negros, and Spanish style arroz amarillo.

Everything you'd imagine from a terrific Spanish Rioja. Dark color, great aroma, taste forward and a smooth finish
