This is a nice 2006 vintage Rioja from Spain, with hints of spices and lots of sweet berries, cherries and fruit tastes. Goes well with brie cheese. Excellent price/performance ratio - great value. Will buy this again, for sure.

Medium ruby colour and developing its aromas of ripe strawberry, red currant, cedar and nutmeg. The palate is Medium-full-bodied and has intensity with ample acidity. Raspberry jam, cherry chocolates, and a touch of spice on the finish. Quite lengthy. Very good quality and value.
