    Fresh nose with black fruit and dark cherry throughout the palate, there’s some leather and tobacco spice here but overall this is an accessible, easy going Rioja with good acid at a bargain price.

    This is incredibly well composed, regardless of the price-point. Coming in at under $11 is just a (huge) bonus! Very clean and polished, bright red fruit and snappy acidity last through a 20-30 second finish dusted by light, fine grain tannins. Perhaps on the modern side for Rioja, but only in the fact that it is seamlessly constructed and lacks the old-school earthy component. Enjoyable now as a pop and pour at this young age, it also has all the structure in place to evolve over the next 3 to 6 years.

    Light-medium bodied, this is well on the fresher side of Rioja, being driven by low key, natural, red fruits. Modest tannins mean this trades more on its acidity, with which it is, happily, well supplied. Those looking for the more balsamic, oak influenced side of Rioja must seek elsewhere! If, however, what you’re after is an easygoing, inexpensive, Tuesday night bottle, this is a terrific choice.

    Super easy drinking, everyday Rioja. Definitely on the juicier side of Rioja, this wine opens with dense fruit and hints of sweet tobacco and pencil lead. Very soft tannins and light acid make this wine soft and smooth with a pleasant finish. This wine make a great party wine that will go with food or by itself.

    Deep, dark-fruited aromas with a smokey note greet the nose. On the palate the wine shows soft black plum and wild game with well-integrated tannins, and good integrity of structure. All too easy-drinking, this wine will have you reaching for more. Definitely a great buy--I would recommend getting a case of this for a great everyday Rioja!
