Thirty years ago, there was little Rioja sold outside the Spanish-speaking world. Now we are fortunate to have a plethora of choices. Discover this ruby-colored, ripe-berry scented wine and enjoy the possibilities!
This wine's fruit character ranges from black cherry to dried cranberry, with root cellar tones adding complexity. It's concentrated, with grippy tannins from American oak, a ripe style to pour with roast lamb.
The 2006 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo that spent 14 months in American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it offers up an attractive nose of cedar, spice box, leather, violets, and blackberry. On the palate it is medium-bodied with ample savory fruit leaning toward elegance. It has good concentration and a bit of structure that should permit another 6 years of enjoyable drinking. It is a good value.
This plush, modern red frames black cherry jam flavors with tobacco and dark chocolate notes. Thick and juicy, with well-integrated tannins and a clean finish. Drink now through 2010.
Light and fresh. This supple red offers bright cherry and spicy flavors, with a smoky, slightly dry finish. Drink now.

Deep red. Dark cherry, plum, tobacco and earth aromas along with an intriguing smoky note. A sweet, supple midweight with a bitter edge to its dark berry and cherry-vanilla flavors. This has a pleasantly light touch and finishes with gentle peppery cut and good persistence.
