He said: Ruby red color. Nice cherry bouquet that continues into a thin taste. Very dry long finish with hints of leather. Nice balance of tannins. Not the vibrant Rioja taste I expected, but at $7.20 it’s a good value and a very drinkable inexpensive Rioja wine.
She said: Medium cherry bouquet and flavor. Medium body, dry smooth tannins that make for a good experience and linger into moderate length finish.
