This is a very good wine for the money. Not so many wines that you could describe fairly as “fine” are available for so little. What impressed me most was the intensity of the flavour and length of the finish. You can certainly pay a lot more for less excellent wine.
Great value reserva
We tried many reserva wines when touring la Rioja, and this one was one of our favourites. For an everyday red this is great value and tastes great. Full-bodied but not overpowering, so nice to drink alone, but also good with red meat.
This is my favourite (and a favourite for everyone I've introduced this wine to!). Incredible especially for the price. Better than far more expensive bottles of Rioja, I have to visit their vineyard one day!
This wine is an absolute bargain! With Robert Parker giving it 92-93 points it should come as no surprise this wine is a good one. Fruity, oaky, with minerals and tannins. Finish on the mellow end. Great buy!
A decent rioja
A really nice wine for the price. . . . . .. . . . . . . . .
