Fresh red fruits, balsamic, oak notes. Great acidity. If there’s meat on the grill (or cast iron as the case may be) go for it

Almost see trough red at a glance, it has that brownish rim consistent with the age. Full of dark fruit and some tobacco leafs on the scent. On the pallet it is full bodied with great balance, and defined tannings. One of the best value wines I’ve found in a long time: it’s got aging in oak and bottle which have provided ample softening time. All this for less than twenty bucks.

$18. Wow! Bought in 2019 at that price with six yrs. of age. Fruit and earth.

wild oak character in this one vs other riojas, some savory stuff happening (dill, balsamic), cherries for days, dry finish, I’m into it

Just the type of tempranillo I was looking for. Full body, traditional, delicious.
