A revisit to this wine. Overpriced in comparison to many other Rioja offerings at far greater value, but still a value compared to most of the piratical opportunism one encounters in Winedom. Toasty coconaut, pineapple, green bean
pea, and spice box aromas foreshadow the heavier mouthfeel, cherry and cinnamon, plum, nutmeg and vanilla. Lots of variegated tannins, cedar-y, oaky, approachable, but with a green streak hidden by winemaker magic. Crafted for pleasure- seekers, but sometimes things are popular because they taste good.

More oxidized than I remember, but still delicious leather oaky awesomeness with smooth tannins and luscious black fruit.

A textbook young Reserva, this Rioja was smoky with black and red fruits, some coffee notes, and red currants. Great value @$14
