Clear, pale/medium, ruby/garnet colour. Clean, medium intensity, sweet spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). Dry, medium acidity, medium smooth tannin and medium bodied, unripe raspberries and strawberries, short finish. **1/2
Lovely carmine red colour. Caramel, toast and a hint of wet stones on the nose. A soft and pretty wine, with tell-tale strawberry-like Rioja flavours but not very concentrated, complex or long. The oak needs a few more years to fade but will the fruit hold out? Excellent value when on special offer at Tesco, but not worth the full price of £9.99.
