The Best, Marques de los Rios, Rioja Crianza

What a steal. Textbook mellow Rioja aroma that takes me to the mood of a tapas bar with its alluring whisker of smoke. This is fantastic Crianza with a lovely core of vibrant red and black fruit framed with sweet spice, velvety oaky texture and a really thrilling uptick of zip at the end… rather like a Kola Cube flourishing at the end of a baton spin by a majorette.
