More about this wine from Rioja, Spain
Located in the northwestern part of Spain, the Rioja region has been making wine since the Roman times but did not use oak casks until the late 1800s. After learning French aging methods, Rioja winemakers were able to refine their wines and other cellars followed suit as the barrel-aged wines became known internationally.

This young release from Rioja, Spain, is extremely bright and fresh. The wine has an explosive red character showing notes of red cherry, red plum, and red apple skin. There is also a sweet and sour combo that may remind you of strawberry-rhubarb. Fresh tobacco leaves, rich potting soil, and a green note of trimmed privet come through as well. The wine is medium bodied and perfect to enjoy now, especially as the months get cooler.

Spanish reds are typically sultry and smoky, and this Rioja fits that classic mold. We're snacking on sliced Iberico ham while sippin' this gem.
