    July 9, 2019 - A decent Rioja that started out better and faded over time.

    July 1, 2019 - It's fine. Certainly a solid wine, with nice cherry and other fruit flavors and good body + acidity, but it doesn't necessarily punch above its price point for a Rioja.

    June 16, 2019 - Deep red in color. Not a bit of sediment in the bottle. Showing no signs of age. Muted nose of red fruit. Mild and smooth with just a bit of heat. Smoke. Medium / medium long finish. Good, not great. There are certainly better options for the price (Vinsacro Dioro being a personal favorite).

    May 11, 2019 - Red, medium intensity.
    Initially served a but cold, dark fruit, some green notes. Vanilla, red flowers.
    Dark fruit, muscot, cedar/tobacco, vanilla, hint of caramel. Red flowers, like roses. Liquorice and some green notes.
    On the palate some nice acidity, red fruit, oak. A good tanin structure.
