Aged in American oak for 12 months this Rioja has a distinctly new world tinge to it. Fruity nose but not overpowering the wine eventually opened up to reveal a very nice acidic pucker (100% tempranillo), without compromising the deliciousness of the rasberry, cherry palate.

Not quite the body of the 2004, but still an excellent buy for a medium body slightly off-dry red. Well balanced, cherry with a hint of vanilla. Great with spicier dishes.

Nice but not overly complex. Balanced. Served with an Herb Crusted Prime Rib and it was a but unsupportive.

Like it more than the consensus here--and it certainly doesn't seem like a "sangria wine" to me. Medium bodied with strawberry and cherry fruit with soft tannins, good acidity and oak for balance. There are better wines out there for sure, but for $11 you could do a whole lot worse.

Tannins and oak overpower the palate, the oak also brings a strong woody aroma. It seems to be a good wine for sangria, but I did not try that. After standing for half and hour, the oak retreated to light floral aroma. The body however became lighter, and the wine gained a fruity taste. The tannins however remained overpowering.

Used it for sangria. Was a total winner! Tried another Spanish wine that did not live up to using this one. Went back and bought 3 more bottles for future use.
