Sour cherry, iodine, meat, spices (from oak), and funk. Sour and salty on the palate. Moderate acidity and elevated tannins.

This thing has no business being $17. Smoke, charcoal, chocolate, toasty oak, vanilla, and cinnamon.. this is Tempranillo turned up to 11. Still beautiful acidity and color, dense texture with some gripping tannins. I’d give this 5 more years to settle down or decant overnight.. but she’s a beaut for the modest price tag.

Salty meat, vanilla, red and black currant, black pepper on the nose. The palate is very long with this strong acid backbone ans some oaky notes on the sides along with some currant touches. More tertiary than primary I'd say. A salty meaty finish with a shy fruit. Good but could have stayed in the cellar a couple of additional years. A bit too oaky for my taste

This wasn’t as good as I expected it to be, although it was pleasant. Have another bottle and will try it again.

Taco night. Very good, nicely balanced between black fruits, tobacco and earth.

Fantastic Rioja bang for the buck. Nice earth and oak with dark fruit notes. Drinks a lot older than it is!

Prior tasting notes apply. Hey for like $13 at Costco I had to buy more. Find it, buy it, and enjoy it. Really well done.
