Another 4th Friday for the books! What a variety this month!

Rioja wines have become my second love after Napa cabs. I swoon over these. The nose on a well made Rioja is enough to make me only smell from the glass and not even taste! This was no different. Sweet Coconut & dill on the nose with a peppery, tobacco, black cherry palate. Delicious.

Plum, eucalyptus and tobacco on the nose. Also got raspberry, plum and hints of raisin on the palate. A very tasty wine!

Combination of red fruit, eucalyptus and earth. This wine is still too young - simply amazing!

Fun birthday gift wine to get us out of our new world focus. Medium manageable tannins but nice finish.
