93 Point Rioja
2013 Marques de Reinosa Rioja Reserva...$19.99
At 20 bucks, the 2013 Reserva (100% Tempranillo aged three years in 60/40 American and French oak) is an incredible value. Black raspberry, toasted spice, cedar wood and hints of vanilla all emerge from the glass, and it has medium to full-bodied richness and weight, vibrant acidity, sweet tannin and a great finish. It's going to need another year or two of bottle age to really shine, but is seriously good. There’s roughly 2,000 cases available and it’s well worth seeking out!
