Nose: Oak, hay, spice, pepper, mixed berries

Deep red color

Tannins, dehydrated cherry, bright on the palate, dry finish.

On the nose: dark fruits with a hint of pepper.
Taste: a well-balanced blend; soft tannins and an initial taste of cherries and black current with a hint of pepper on the after-taste. The graciano grapes only make up 10% of the blend, but they bring a layer of dark berries and a kick of espresso that I really enjoyed. The Tempranillo grape beautifully evens out the acidity level I often associate with the marzuelo grape, and provides a really lovely aroma of rich, dark fruits.

A great fall back that is easy to find in most areas. Ripe red fruit, pepper notes and a smooth, round mouthfeel make this very approachable.

All I can think of is...dirty cocoa? And not in a good way. I'll drink it but not a fave.

Medium bodied, strong red fruits. Cherry, red apple and strawberry. Sweeter than I expected but a nice finish.

I may have rated this wonderful Rioja before, but every time I have it with my meal I enjoy it all over again. Very good, highly recommended.

A lovely garnacha. Warm and relatively full of body.
