Garnet color with a tea-red rim. Aromatically quiet, exuding red currant, black tea, leather, and woodsy mahogany. Smooth, fine-grained tannins, black cherry fruit, and modest acidity finish with a starburst of pomegranate and hibiscus. This is a bright, shimmering Rioja that’s ready now. Also: I love the Juan Gris cubist label (1922). 14% abv | $22

Flavors of blackberry and black cherry with rich notes of anise and vanilla. Smooth tannins and a refreshing burst of acidity on the finish.

Deliciously complex and aged perfectly... Pretty long finish with dark fruit herbaceous and a little but of earthiness. Tannic but great development of flavors
