Drink and Enjoy!
Nothing wrong with this wine. For 100% Tempranillo, I was very surprised by the acid and sugar components in the wine. Typically a blending wine, often with Garnacha or Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine stands on its own and is a phenomenal value at $12. Food not required with this wine...drink it while watching a movie. Really, really, nice!
Super easy drinking
Super smooth, very fruity, goes down incredibly easy. I finished a bottle of this and didn't even realize I'd gone through the entire thing. Perfect wine to have as a go-to.
Really great rioja
This is just as Cameron says. It actually has very good structure, but the fruit is there. Excellent acid to balance the fruit. Nice spiciness and a little more robust than many riojas. This really is just as described in the video. Although lighter than a cab or syrah, this still stands up to meat. Could go with almost anything. Ready to go right out of the bottle, but opens up after an hour. At this price it really is a great value. When on sale, it's a steal! Seriously.
Awesome Red for $12
This was a nicely spiced wine, and given that it was only $12 - something that you could open up during the week without any guilt. Also - I feel like wines from Spain are in-style, it would make an easy hosting gift.
