A quality Rioja that never disappoints. This deep, succulent, rich red will take the edge off the hardest day. Lovely complex range of flavours including leather and vanilla from the oak, smooth rounded tannin intertwine with ripe satisfying cherry flavours.

A lovely classic Rioja Reserva with ripe dark red Fruit, easy going tannin, succulent body. Sexy on its own or pleased to assist with a wholesome bite of your favourite wholesome dish. At this time of year some oven roasted rabbit seasoned with lemon, honey, rosemary and thyme should do the job perfectly well!
Cune make very good benchmark quality wine and this 2013 reception is no exception.
£12.99 from Majestic (or cheaper when mixed with a case of 6)

Wines from this famous part of north west Spain are part of the modern British psyche. In this first segment of notes we taste 1 crianza and 2 reserva’s. These examples are great examples of what benchmark Rioja should taste like - rich and dangerously pleasurable.

What is it about this time of year that begs for open fires, roasted dinners and the taste of fine wines? It’s the latter that acts as a flowing ink joining the dots across memory and landscape. It connects our primordial selves to something we can’t quite describe yet, like soft caresses, translates into the language of pleasure. Yup, that is the work of damn good wine from Rioja!
