Opened a bottle of Rioja to savour over the week from the eto… Rioja is a bit of uncharted territory for me. While this is nice enough, not enough to make me a convert. There is definitely a lot going on… attractive blackberry fruit, high acidity, lingering tannins… A bit rough and raw, probably having it way too young (not me, the wine). Still like the wine’s story, even if no wooden box (as still stated in the blurb).
Still not bad for a Monday night… Pataille Marsannay 2014 is two thirds the price, enough said.
What are you drinking this midweek?
