He says: It is absolute garbage, and almost undrinkable.
She says: I barely drank any of this wine but a few sips was enough to tell me that I didn’t want any more.
He says: It’s a decent wine, but probably not the best Tempranillo I’ve ever tried.
She says: It was enjoyable but it did not blow me away as other aged Rioja’s have done in the past.
She says: Nothing really memorable about this and I would have expected more from a Spanish wine with 6 years of age.
He says: Pretty simple easy sipper.
Two of these had little between them, showing an imbalance of oak and fruit, blending into that one global wine style we seem to be careening towards. However, one of the wines really stood out and displayed the style that Ribera del Duero is known for…
She says: This deserved the official stamp of the Ribera del Dureo… to me this is the Corazón (heart) of the Duero.
He says: Is it a lot of money? Yes (for some). However, if you’re going to the Okanagan and buying 2-3 year old red wines for $30-40 (or paying more while dining out), do yourself a favor and try something with age, sophistication, and grace, for exactly the same price.
She says: Big, bold and in your face but with sweet fruit and vanilla to soften the blow.
He says: I’d only prefer this wine if I was ordering a big, juicy steak with a side of roast beef – hold the veggies.
He says: Not recommended unless you’re sitting at a Victoria Secret lingerie viewing and need to control your drool.
She says: I almost had to snort the wine initially to get any aromas from it. Lacked the complexity and excitement of the other two wines.
