My new favorite wine...
Want something different than a pinot noir, try this wine... I bought on a whim and it is a new favorite.
Fruity and full flavour without heaviness. Different in a good way! Would definitely recommend for drinking, with or without food.
2009 Interesting Rioja

Not your typical Rioja. Much deeper somewhat lush mouth feel with a dark fig, plum and raisin palate, controlled tannins on a medium finish. Best with hearty meats and stews, may be a bit overwhelming as an aperitif. Requires extensive decanting. Repeat buy in our house. Recommended without reservation.

Nice, a little dry.
Very nice wine for the price
Enjoyable red, not as complex as i thought, but very clean finish. A pleasant experience.

Great Wine for the price
This wine has a wonderful nose and a soft smooth finish - in between it offers the bite of a good Rioja - fantastic wine for the price.

Tasted like it would be nice without the fizz. Dumped the bottle. We're glad that others enjoyed theirs but won't risk it again.
Spain has more acres under vine than any other country and ranks third in production behind Italy and France. Much of this output continues to be hot-country jug wine made to satisfy the everyday thirsts of the domestic and greater European markets

The grape's name translates to "little early one," a moniker that references fruit's early ripening tendency-- Tempranillo thrives even with a short growing season. The varietal is at its best in...
