Great Tempranillo. Under $20. Needs to breathe at least 30 minutes to lose the tannic bite. Full flavor after that.

A knockout for this vintage. Concentrated fruit with and hedonistic oak aromatics. Refined finish.

Bit spicy for my tastes but still a good pick. Strong berry, deep reds.

Very interesting bouquet of red licorice and soft cherry.. Can definitely taste the 24 months of oak - not my fave but nice Rioja.

Vanilla and butterscotch on the cork and in the bottle. Strong oak influence. Prunes. Dried nectarines. Med-full bodied. Velvety. Spicy then smooth finish.

As with most riojas full bodied, pleasantly earthy and dry - great job!
