great Value.Vintage 2004 terrific too!
I loved this wine, when it comes to value for money it was right on the nose and I'd give it 9/10 for value, there was a hint of blackcurrant, it was perfectly aromatic with a tiniest bit of complexity to it. Going to try and order some to the door for the summer season as the Spannish wine of choice!

Izadi is based in Villabuena, a town of 300 inhabitants and 35 wineries in the Rioja Alavesa, the highest part of Rioja. The hillside winery was founded in 1987 (the precipitous slope allows for gravity assisted production) by Gonzalo Anton as a modern breakaway from the traditional style of wine produced by other members of his family. As son Lalo Anton says: ‘the whole concept of Izadi really started around wanting to produce wine to satisfy the needs of our friends over a meal’. Lalo explains their winemaking philosophy: “Flexibility is the key - we follow a style but conditions change with each vintage. Order, flexibility and cleanliness are the keys for us to produce modern, international wines that are true to their roots and a natural expression of the area”. The wines have real intensity of fruit, purity of flavour and individuality, the expression of which is unhindered by the sort of deviant flavours that are all too common in Rioja. This blend of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo has a good structure of ripe tannins and solid dark cherry flavours.
