Bodegas Luis Alegre Reserva Rioja 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is subtle and refined on the nose, full of seedy spicy notes and wrapped in vanilla, tobacco and oak aromas over a bed of dandelion-tinged earthy black fruit. Soft and smooth on entry, this is almost tender in the mouth with a delicate feel. There’s some nice acidity here and spicy wood flavors early on. Soft tannins support black cherry and blackberry flavors on the mid-palate. It’s very easy to drink and enjoy with cherry pit flavors on the back end and through the modest finish, but this strikes me as a Rioja with training wheels. 85pts

This wine was slightly oaky and spicy. It was middle of the road and tasted a hint of cherry when paired with turkey.
