Hazaña Viñas Viejas Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Ratings on Delectable

Isaac Pirolo

So I get it... you saw the 92 point score from Parker and splurged on this for $10 and then when your wife complained that it wasn't The Prisoner you wrote a scathing review (on vivino) about this thin, weak, and 'earthy,' wine with 'too much acidity.' This is a Rioja in Barbaresco's clothing. Rose petal and tar dominate, with lots of juicy cherry, and a sandstone backdrop. A flutter of garden herbs creeps in over time. This is an excellent value for those who know what they're buying.

Meh - contrary to the hi ratings I read, this wine under-delivered with watered down red fruit and lots of leather, decent acidity but not very well balanced. Lacking depth & concentration

Nose has leather and tobacco. Acidic palate. Was expecting better given the 91 rating by Wine Advocate.
