A deep, rich tempranillo with inviting cherry and vanilla flavors.

The 1995 red Codice, a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Grenache aged 6-8 months in new oak, is an amazing wine for the price. A dark ruby/purple color is followed by a complex display of sweet, toasty oak, and jammy black cherries. This hedonistic wine possesses lush ripeness, a silky, seamless texture, medium body, and a lavish richness that borders on opulence. This is an amazing, fruit-driven wine to drink over the next several years.

Initial hints of spicy cherry fruit are quickly enveloped in the sweet, vanilla-tinged scent of new American oak (a Rioja favorite). On the palate the fruit emerges, full and supple, redolent of raspberry, cherry and red currant. A smooth finish is marked with toasty, chocolately oak.

Providing an inexpensive introduction to Rioja, the 1997 Codice Tinto displays a dark ruby color, as well as a sweet, caramel and berry-scented nose with notes of oregano and spicy oak. Soft, ripe and medium-bodied, with good fruit, this attractively made wine should be drunk over the next 1-2 years.

Soft and round though a bit light, this red offers cherry, plum and sweet vanilla flavors, with gentle tannins and a spicy finish. Drink now.

This wine (a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Grenache) reveals loads of fruit, a medium-bodied, berry, earthy, spicy mid-palate, good glycerin, and a supple-textured, lush finish. This wine should drink well for 2-3 years, and if more aromatics develop, it may merit a score 1-2 points higher.

The 2001 Codice Tinto (a 100% Tempranillo cuvee from high altitude vineyards) is aged six months in 1-3 year old American oak barrels. This dense example reveals delicious black cherry fruit intermixed with sandalwood, pepper, dried herb, and spice characteristics. With fine density, a sweet, plush mid-palate, and a long, elegant, concentrated finish, it will drink well for 1-3 years. Ten thousand cases of this beauty made it into the United States. An outrageous value.
