Bittersweet chocolate and raspberries. Loooooong finish. Better in three years or so, but SO GOOD now

Excellent Rioja. Typical developed notes, red cherry, coconut and leather dominant.

Toasted oak, vanilla, cherry pie. Lush, ripe red fruit, wrapped in hints of tobacco and cedar. Solid QPR from an excellent producer.

First sip: *puts it down immediately and looks at it with astonishment* “Oh! I really like that!”

If you know of a better bottle of wine that is under $20, I would love to know. Dark fruit, oak, balance.

If you can't smell American oak, drink this wine. My favorite Rioja producer, by far.

Had another bottle, aged well. Deep red with aromas of bright red fruits with graphite notes. A 100% Tempranillo from several exceptional vineyards, aged in new French oak for one year then in 3-year old oak for the second year of aging. On the palate cherry and strawberry flavors with vanilla oak, earthy spice and chewy savory tannins, well balanced. Lingering finish ending with fruit characteristics. Very nice, great value.
