This was an interesting find, an ’09 Reserva Rioja at Costco for $14.99. It intrigued me in a random sort of way so I dropped it in the cart. And it turned out to be a pretty good buy that I would recommend for fans of Spanish reds with a little age on them.
The wine pours a medium deep purple; a wonderful floral nose that just continued to open up over the several hours we enjoyed this wine; also getting violets with hints of vanilla. This is a fun wine to sniff.
