Community Tasting Notes 4

    October 11, 2019 - This fruit forward Rioja is ruby red in color and made from 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha Tinta.
    On the nose, you get an intense cherry aroma with hints of vanilla.
    This Rioja had all of the hallmark flavors of cherry, plum and leather with just the right amount of oak. It was well balanced with a medium body, medium tannins and medium+ acidity. I could just drink this all night long and did.

    October 23, 2018 - Unlike others I thought this wine was a great easy drinking weekday value. Good rioja flavors, not complex or full bodied but great with a weeknight meal. Picked this up at a random wine shop in Pittsburgh, will buy again if I can find it.

    As soon as I popped the cork you could smell the rioja notes. More red fruit than expected, less acid and very mild tannins. Balanced medium body, could last a few more years but not the long haul.

    April 24, 2018 - Drank with Jeff & Norah. Nice mustiness and acidity. Purchased on sale -- worth it at this price point. Moderate value at regular price.
