Top Notes For
Two Forks and a Corkscrew

We both thoroughly enjoyed this Rioja. Make sure to give this wine time to open. This is a medium-heavy bodied wine that is smooth with a bit of texture. Notes of cherry, blackberry, and plum are followed by earthy herbs, tobacco, and licorice. The finish is not very long, but overall a great wine. Read our full review here: http//wp.me/p5EPbt-6E

Dark fruit, medium body, and high in tannins. I enjoyed this blend with a sirloin tip dinner!

Suggest this be enjoyed with some hearty food. Far too bold to be had without. Enjoyable, but there are better Rioja's at this price point

Supple balanced fruit. A whiff of tobacco. And some aromatic oak. Not very complex or unique, but as a $12 everyday ufility player this is really quite enjoyable

So this Rioja is about $12 at Whole Foods. For me it probably beats most reds at that price.

Good wine? Yes. Worthy of 91 points? Nope. Just my opinion. I've tasted #Rioja in the same price point such as Cerro Anon by Bodegas Olarra that showed more character and Terrior. I'm not a fan of the point system and this is a classic example of why not. It's a good red don't get me wrong but for 91 points I would expect it to be stellar given the amount of competing wines there are.
