Impressive Rioja Tempranillo. Aromas of new oak, smoke, and cedar dominate the dark berry fruit notes.
Taste follows the same line. Medium to full body, dry, soft, velvety tannins lead to a moderate length finish. Priced under $18 in Ontario LCBO's this wine offers great value.

Nice ruby colour with a medium intensity on the nose. Nose and taste show licorice, mocha, roasted peppers and cigar box. Some herbal notes on the end finish. The one big negative is it's unusual high alcohol for this wine, which normally is around 12%. This one is at 14% and you can feel the heat on the taste.
