Very chewy berry and cherry notes with medium minus tannin. Super fun wine to drink in large amounts without too much thinking.

Wet dog initially on the nose that blows off quickly. Tobacco, earth, black pepper, roasted kale, red currants, acidity hits on the finish.

Mostly Garnacha. Fruit forward, nice dry finish. Medium bodied. Lots of dry raspberry. Uncomplicated & straight forward. very smooth, fun and enjoyable Rioja for under $10. Part of the Opici wine imports portfolio.

Lots of cherries, nice tannin, a little minty on the nose for me. Nothing to complain about but nothing exciting either!

Lighter than most Garnachas. Bright cherry/strawberry, dusting of spice -- nice quaffer, terrific value
