Great buy from Rioja

2012 Hazana Rioja Tradicion....$11.99
(85% tempranillo and 15% graciano; aged for a year in a combination of French and American oak): Bright violet color. Highly aromatic scents of black and blue fruits, Indian spices and fresh flowers are complemented by a deeper note of candied licorice. Juicy and broad on the palate, with intense dark berry and floral pastille flavors that become spicier with aeration. Dusty tannins give shape to the clinging finish.90 points
Rated 90/100 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
