Currants and dark berries, with a little orange peel. Medium strong acidity, lightish tannins and light bodied. A little bit herbal too. Very well balanced, and a good value.

Delicious rioja at a great value. Perfect balance of spice and structured tannins makes it a versatile medium-bodied red!

Double dare- how many wines combine such finesse, power, & fruit for the money?
Seems like I never tire of this. Like visiting an old best friend.

Light and beautifully balanced. Just the right amount of fruit and tannins. I could drink this all night.

The literal opposite of the Rocks & Gravel Rhone blend which we had prior, thank god, otherwise would have been dwarfed by this rich beauty. Needs air to settle into a dark inked, vanilla latte of red & black currants, tobacco leaf. A rich vintage, it seems, a bit over-the top given this Producer but still uber enjoyable

Rich man, Poor man—both were excellent companions to our rib eye roast in different ways. Napa cab boldness vs Rioja old world elegance. This time the $15 (Costco) Vina Real Reserva gets the nod.
