91pointsFinca Allende 2001 Allende (Rioja)

Full, rich, robust and probably the best regular Rioja bottling yet from this vanguard producer. The '01 vintage could prove to be a benchmark year for the region, so grab up moderately priced, easy-drinking bottles like this. The berry fruit is lush yet short of syrupy, while the oak is big and forward, yet still largely integrated and appropriate. Tons of mocha and coffee on the finish is a treat. Michael Schachner
