        My Review: Gets an extra point for the value - this is a $16 bottle that tastes like $25 wine. And with this aging potential, I would really consider buying a case. VERY nice! Score: 90/100

        Lealtanza Reserva Bodegas Altanza 2005

        D.O.C.A., Rioja, Spain

        Reviewed: May 26, 2012

        $19.95

          My Review: On the nose - "Rioja" - well integrated oak, mushrooms, earth. On the palate, medium body, round, fresh red and black berries. It finishes with a very pleasant mid weight tastes of dry figs, herbs and mint. Score: 89/100
