I bought a case of these half bottles for weekday drinking. Almost gone, will buy more! Truly one of the best values in the wine world!

Lovely, supple flavour and a light body. Purple fruit and spice.

I love this wine. I love how it actually tastes Spanish and not like a Californian. It's funky and a bit uncomfortable, but catapults my imagination. I love everything I've tasted from this winery.

Tasting really nice right now. Strawberry and earth with a very slightly meaty finish.

Nose of cherries, stewed tomato, cigar box,
Spices, and leather. Bright red fruits on the attack with a silky finish. Very pretty, and an archetypal Rioja. Brilliant.

2003 vs 1970. Completely different wines from the same thread. Amazing experience at the winery.
