Rioja rules!

Rioja rules! |

We love to say "ree OH hah". Rioja, it feels good to say it and drink it! Here are three wines from the iconic Spanish region that should not be missed, and all are under $13. The Bozeto de Exopto just arrived and it's one of the most compelling Rioja's we have tasted at this price in a long time.

  1. Cune Rioja Crianza

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#51909

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
    The red 2016 Cune Crianza is an affordable and classical blend of Tempranillo with some 15% Garnacha and Mazuelo that is easy to drink and understand, with a soft palate and an approachable profile. It has a bright nose with red fruit rather than black, quite aromatic and expressive. The palate is soft and approachable, very easy to drink, with a touch of freshness. They produced a whopping 4.5 million bottles of this! The bottle I tasted was bottled in April 2019 after 12 months in barrique. There are eight different lots of this wine that are bottled throughout the year, for which they try to make the most homogeneous blend possible, but some variation is inevitable. But the overall quality of this year is certainly higher than the previous one.

    Black cherry, red plum, licorice and smoke flavors mingle in this round red. Shows good density, while orange peel acidity and light tannins keep this focused. Drink now through 2028. 375,000 cases made, 10,000 cases imported.

    Berry, spice and tobacco aromas work in unison to give this Crianza a nice start. A firm palate avoids jamminess and shows grip. Dark plum, raspberry, spice and pepper flavors hold on through the finish. For everyday Rioja, there isn’t much better than this.

  2. Bozeto de Exopto

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#53740

    JS9292 pts. - - Monday, November 2, 2020
    A creamy, full-bodied red with plum and berry character. Nice purity of fruit to this. It’s full-bodied and layered with polish and beauty. Lovely tannins here. Drink or hold.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The red 2019 Bozeto de Exopto is a blend of 50% Tempranillo from Ábalos with the Mediterranean touch of 40% Garnacha and 10% Graciano from Alfaro to add freshness. He wants the wine to express the Garnacha character, and it does but in a subtler way than if it was a varietal bottling. But all the grapes seem nicely integrated and complement each other. The wine fermented in a combination of stainless steel, concrete vats and used barriques, where it matured for six months. 2019 is a warmer, Mediterranean vintage, and the wine is soft and approachable, juicy and fruit driven. 75,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019, earlier than in cooler years.

    Saturated ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented dark berry, cherry and licorice scents are complicated by suggestions of violet and mocha. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering blackberry and cherry cola flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes smoky, smooth and long, with velvety tannins and repeating dark fruit and licorice notes.

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#53549

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The juicy and chewy unoaked red 2019 Señorío de P. Peciña Cosecha Tinto has bright ripe fruit and an earthy touch, a medium body and soft tannins that give it a supple texture. It’s a blend of Tempranillo with 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano fermented with indigenous yeasts and kept in tank until bottling. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2020.
    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2020
    Vivid scarlet. Pungent red berry, blood orange and floral scents pick up a spicy topnote with air. Juicy and well-concentrated but lively as well, offering sappy strawberry, cherry and orange pith flavors and a touch of succulent herbs. Finishes long and smooth, with repeating florality and a gently sweet red fruit note.
