Pure pleasure. A borderline decadent traditional style.

Blanco 2012
Great nose of ripe pears, touch of peach with light coconut, persimmon and smokey almond, snow melt mineral touch. Good palate weight with ripe pear, peach and sweet apple, very drinkable stuff.

Beautifully expressive nose of small black & red berry fruit and a sweet herbaceous character with great depth. In the mouth this is rich and full on with plenty of acidity, plush fruit filled tannin, chewy but juicy with a succulent black fruited finish. Superb.

Went through the CMS grid blind on this one and was way off. Called it a Cali Merlot?! Definitely more modern in style which threw me. After being revealed it's definitely still ripe and more fruit forward than earthy for a rioja. However, still quite tasty.

Middle of the road in style. Lots of fruit with a hint of earthy balance.

Rioja isn’t normally my jam but this was really good, especially for such a modern style.

Great wine, dark ruby colour, lots of ripe black fruits, vanilla, leather, and a touch of smoke and spices, serious wine.

Surprisingly bold - was expecting something lighter and more mellow , but got a nice rich wine instead - enjoyed this wine library shipment
