I think this is absolutely incredible example of some killer classic Rioja. Tart red cherry, slight sweet soy sauce, moderate earth, brooding acid, vanilla/dill still present despite likely old barrique. Paired with spicy shrimp tacos. Everyone, get some...

Nose of cherry, dill, oak, beef jerkey, and black pepper.

Quite highed toned with lots of sour cherry and plum. A lot of acidity with hints of dill and creamy oak. Pretty mild tannins.

I originally had this in a blind tasting and thought it was a very good new world pinot because of the red fruit, acidity, and noticable oak. Either way, great wine.

Red fruit forward on the nose and palate, a smooth, round body with all the cranberries and a balancing acidity. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Earthy, woodsy on the nose. Fresh red fruit and lively acidity on the palate. This wine loves food!

Young but old at heart. With the best espárragos ever and killer cabrito.
