Yet to find a better bargain. Not the greatest Rioja – but for <£5 it certainly is. Very oaky so needs to breathe for ½ hour, then blackberry on the nose with rich oaky flavour. Bought in Feb ’99 by the way… Identified noticeable apple / sherry (Manzanilla) aromas as well, and creaminess on the finish on the tongue.
