8 years old, but still young. Bright and pure with red berries and minerals.

Smooth Rioja (Tempranillo blend), good balance of fruit, tannin and acid, at The Emory on Beacon Hill in Boston

Deep dark cherries with a lusty hint of oak. Dessert for adults. Not cloying but comfort by the fire in a wool sweater with my dog- and glass. So satisfying. Savor. Sip. Now- tannins tasting of ripe plum skins. Yummy

Loved it with our pizza; 2010 vintage was full of berrry notes, but it was complex enough to be interesting.

Rioja. What can I say. The world thinks of this as mostly Tempranillo. But the spaniards -- these guys are like your uncle who says 'you're gonna get what you're gonna get and you're gonna like it'. 60% Grenache. We liked it

On the nose tart red fruits and tobacco

Mild tannis with tobacco and spice carrying through. Not bold enough for my taste

70% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano, 10% Garnacha
