My Home Bistro Review

He said… “This Rioja is very smooth and excellent with food, especially meats, or on its own. There is a well rounded berry and cherry fruitiness throughout the mouth. There is a  vanilla, almost Merlot flavour on the top of the pallet and a mild warmth to the back of the throat. It is very good value wine sold in many good restaurants” 8.5/10

She said… “This wine was perfect with our Rib Roast and was good to drink on its own also. A good, pleasant taste that went down well.!” 8.5/10
