This 9 year old Rioja is still drinking nicely, although it’s on the way out.
Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel, but a little oxidized on the nose.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.
Tangy, and a good food wine. I paired it with a Turkey burger and fries.
