A solid Rioja here. Fresh red berry fruits, with noted smokey and spicy flavours from the oak. While the oak makes its presence felt, it is in good balance with the fruit so it doesn't taste like you are licking the floor of a sawmill. Fine depth and complexity. Fairly priced at $17.95, but on sale right now for $15.95, making this a fine value indeed. For Rioja fans, worth picking up a few bottles at the discounted price for sure Tasted April 2016.
