Intriguing rose, much less fruit-forward than most. Grown on limestone soil, this had a saline, almost briny aroma. The palate led off with minerals, followed by raspberry. A rose for red wine lovers, this was made from 100% grenache/garnacha. Excellent QPR. Bone dry, steely, and only then fruity. Good balance.

Nice Rioja...Initial taste has an abundance of jammy character. After a minute it opens up enough to allow for the packs of dark cherries to develop. A little spice and hint of minerals make this a nice and tasty tempranillo perfect for really any type of food you wish to pair. Medium bodied and has a fairly brief finish, but it is long enough to say this is a great bottle of wine at its very modest price.

Source: Astor Wines & Spirits

This easy drinking Rioja is made with 100% Tempranillo. A light, red filled with ripe, red fruit and soft tannins, this wine appeals to many different palates. Perfect with everything from chicken to pasta to fish.

<p>Best described as a simple &ldquo;easy drinking&rdquo; wine for &ldquo;everyday&rdquo; consumption with intense fruit driven character, supple tannins and well-balanced structure. This wine is produced by Bodegas y Vi&ntilde;edos de Aldeanueva which owns 4.2% of estate owned vineyards in the DOC of Rioja.&nbsp;</p>
