gift from Bill & Beth Osborne
The Wine Sisters reviewed this wine as follows:

When we see Alvaro Palacios’ wines hit the shelves we happily snap them up, knowing they won’t be around for long. La Vendimia is his basic, entry level Rioja – not a serious wine, but very quaffable and at a great price. Fresh and bright, full of ripe fruits, a little wild herb and spice, this is a great option for entertaining a crowd. Tasted November 2012
This wine is simultaneously modern and old school. Modern, because this fresh, bright, flavourful red is the product of a cutting-edge winery; old school, because it’s made with a higher percentage of Garnacha — a practice more common in Rioja Baja where superstar winemaker Alvaro Palacios hails from. Look for aromas of blackberry jam, fresh raspberry and a hint of Mediterranean country herbs (aka, garrigue). A consistent value, enjoy this wine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
