Berberana Rioja Reserva Carta de Oro 2005

Member Review by notintheira:

blah. another mass-produced mid-weight rioja. tastes a little dried out, with few notes of distinction, tea maybe, but little discernible tempranillo character. the wood seems to have soaked up whatever fruit was in here to begin with and (i'm guessing) filtration and other winery pumping-about has eliminated any personality. it does open up a bit an hour after opening, but still, it's not that it's "bad," it's just that it's completely uninteresting and could be from almost anywhere. pair with pizza or skip it.
