Natalie's Score: 89/100
A juicy, delicious Rioja red wine with a firm tannic grip and fleshy black fruit. Love the layering and complexity on this wine as well as the long finish. Pair with lamb and rosemary.
Food pairings: herbed steaks, portobello mushroom, chili, grilled lamb steaks, pan-seared venison.
Glorious Game Wine

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Made from 90% Tempranillo with 10% Mazuelo & Graziano. A fragrant nose of ripe cherries, vanilla and leather and a palate showing ripe cherries, earth, leather, vanilla, baking spices and cloves. Dry and smooth mouthfeel with a long cherry/vanilla finish.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This delicious Rioja hits that magic $20 price point and offers great value for an already aged red wine - 2007. This juicy full-bodied red wine is 90% Tempranillo with 5%Manzuelo and 5% Graciano. No holds barred black fruit, earthiness, mint, blackcurrant leaf aromas. The palate brings black pepper, leather, warm spices and integrating tannins. Medium acidity and good length on a fruit driven finish. Grilled or roasted red meats, lamb. Decanting will only make it better. Drink now, not suitable for further ageing.
Tasted: April 2015

Balsamic notes, black olive, dark chocolate, truffle. Showing its age, and still in great shape. Enjoy soon with mushroom risotto. 89 points. Tasted March 2015. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Firm and persistent tannins on the palate with ripe blackberries and spices. This Spanish red wine was aged for 20 months in French and American oak barrels. This is a red wine blend of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano grapes. Polished, nice finish. - Community Wine Reviews|
