Overly fruity and sweet oak for my taste, but should be a crowd pleaser.

Classic Rioja. This one is smoother than most of the more earthy ones. Love it. Wine Spectator's 93 points well deserved, and at 16 bucks, what an outstanding value!

I agree with Zach and others this is NOT a classic Rioja. Slightly oxidized. Dried prune plums mostly. I guess Just OK.

Light cherries and oak. Full body and a little fruit forward. Acidic, tart finish that seemed a bit of out place.

Deep Ruby red color and full bodied with a nice smooth rounded mouth feel. Red cherry and oak notes leading to a short peppery lightly tannic finish. Delicious, easy drinking uncomplicated wine with some nice age on it. Very good value.

Cherry, olive, mineral, and tobacco. Juicy, but taut. Begs for food and a lengthy decant.

Upfront acidity, not particularly complex. Pleasant nose that I appreciated more than the taste. Palatable wine at a good price.
