    He said: This is a GREAT Rioja Grand Reserve. Complex bouquet, taste and finish. A wonderful balance of tastes where none is dominant. A subtle wine that is about as good as it gets. Simply put, it’s an OUTSTANDING Rioja and if you going to spend $20 this is one that should not be missed.

    She said: Absolutely fabulous. The bouquet is so strong I could smell it from a distance. The fruity bouquet led into a delicious taste and full body and flavor that go inito a long frinish. At $20 it’s not inexpensive; however it’s a bargain price for the quality.
