Fresh dark fruit aromas, roasted coffee, and creamy notes. Smooth textured with fresh dark fruit flavors, great acidity, and long finish with polished tannins and spices.

A classic Rioja blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Mazuelo, organic farming, marked by the oak as many traditional Rioja, a good value and easy wine

Really impressive- particularly QPR: very smooth suave stylish w/gorgeous cherry fruit, sweet spices and well-integrated acidity pushing favors thru to lingering finish. This is international style Rioja and really delivers!

Mainly garnacha (92%) this wine has a vibrant red fruit core with crisp acidity and minimal oak on the nose and palate. It’s overflowing with red cherry, dried orange peel, and brush herbs reminiscent of rosemary and thyme with a hint of leather and tar on the long finish. It’s wonderfully easy drinking and the pedigree is impeccable - it’s made by Priorat-wizard Alvaro Palacios from his family’s Vineyards in Rioja Baja. Organic, minimal sulfur use. 14% abv
