Dark fruit, mushroom, wet earth, spices. Thin and forgettable but drinkable.

First poor Rioja experience. I was starting to think that the Spanish region of Rioja was incapable of making bad wine. Well, nothing's perfect

Ripe berry and a hint of leather on the nose. Light mouthfeel with acid and alcohol in perfect balance. Short, earthy finish. A draaaaank with my broski. Viva la ...... Spain.
