This is why Rioja is awesome, especially from this producer. Another great value, and always a safe bet when I see it in a wine list. Rustic, old world style with smokey roasted meat, rich earth, black pepper and anise upfront. As the wine opens, the notes of black cherry, ripe black plums and violets appear. The tannins are noticeable, but smooth, and the oak is well integrated, leaving a trace of vanilla on the finish. A really easy drinking Tempranillo , with a little garnacha, mazuelo and graciano thrown in the mix.

One of the big names in rioja and a well deserved reputation. Their entry level red really showcases the value/quality to be had in the region. Soft ripe cherry and red berry. Sweet oaky pipe tobacco and coconut and roasted wild herbs on the finish. Richly structured tannins med + body and a lovely lingering finish. Take it to your favorite byo

Rioja has never been my favorite spanish region. Ribera del Duero's, and Toro's finely crafted wines have always casted a shadow on their riojan counterparts. But Rioja has payed attention, and is picking up the pace. This wine is beautiful. Rustic chic beautiful. Not Elizabeth Taylor's kind of beauty, but surely, Sophia Loren's.

Old luggage. But we still love it... Violets. Nice body and mouthfeel.

Give it plenty of air. More polished than rustic. Good but not with the earthy funk I like in a Rioja.

Aromas of homemade steak sauce....in a good way. Dusty earth and bramble fruit. Singing for food.

A nice deep red, heavy on the tannins. Wild berries and apricot notes without overpowering the more subtle flavours of the wine.

A great entry level Rioja. Very good. Bright cherry, red berries, and tobacco flavors. Smooth finish. Drinks well on its own or pairs well with a variety of foods
