2005 Bodegas Riojanas Vina Albina Reserva Rioja

2005 Bodegas Riojanas Vina Albina Reserva Rioja Jon Bonné recommended this Rioja in the San Francisco Chronicle.

He said: “This traditional producer near Cenciero, in Rioja Alta, had a stellar showing for its full line of wines.

“The Albina tends to use more Mazuelo and Graciano along with typical Tempranillo, aged with the Reserva for at least two years in American oak.

”It’s muscled and minerally, with bayberry and cherry fruit that barely hints at its age, plus hay and dried mint for complexity.”
