2007 Vina Eguia Rioja Reserva
This is a real stunner for only $10 at Costco. I casually threw this in my cart as I do with a lot of $10 Riojas because I know they will be good, but this one really caught me off guard. This tastes like a $25 Rioja. What a bargain.
Dark, but not too dark in the glass, the nose has a little earth and spice (distinctly Spanish); medium in body, this wine hits with intense red fruit and cherry flavors balanced perfectly with the oak aging. This leads to a nice dry finish, very clean and elegant throughout.
It’s hard to believe this is only $10. I plan on putting a few of these away. Definitely try this wine. I’m going to place it on our Value Picks and our Bronze Rated wines lists. When a wine makes two lists, it’s almost always worthy seeking out.
