A big, juicy Rioja, modern with wide appeal. A touch hot but with good concentration fro the price. Cherry-berry,...

The 2010 Bozeto De Exopto Garnacha-Tempranillo-Graciano, composed in 50%, 40% and 10% ratios, respectively and was aged in oak for 9 months. It is a medium bodied, fruity wine, with intense aromas of red currant, cranberry and abundant liquorice. It has a good, forward acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium finish. It has very food friendly acidity (avoid sweet dishes); drink now. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 86 pts - not a traditional Rioja, I perceived it to be manufactured rather than crafted. Tasted Jan/13.
