I have enjoyed this wine as being fruity , easy to drink with nice fruity smell and very good length. I am recommending this wine as a good value under $15.

Dark garnet in colour with a medium+ intense nose.
Quality is very good for a wine under $15
Positives: This wine features cedar, sandalwood, dark cherry, plums, dates, licorice stick, black tea, leather, sage and burlap. Medium body and tannins with good acidity and a fairly long length.
Interesting Point: LCBO usually has this wine on sale a couple times a year.
Drink now or over the next year on its own or pair it with Spanish Salami.

Very bretty, this old-school Rioja, with enticing leather saddle, barnyard, and earthy notes making for an intriguing, complex nose; hardly sophisticated, but in a good way, and perhaps lacking in fruit for balance, but pleasantly savoury and certainly worth lingering over given its rustic charms; excellent value. Tasted August 2014.
